Current & Connected

Each month I will feature one or two resources that will be helpful to you as parents to stay connected and current with how you can support your students at home with what they are achieving here at school.


This month's resource comes from the National PTA website and is titled Parents' Guide to Student Success (link to document below). This guide was collaboratively developed by teachers, parents, and education experts. Its purpose is to provide clear and consistent expectations for what students should be learning at each grade (in the areas of math and reading) in order to be prepared for college and/or career.


I hope you find this resource to be beneficial as you begin or continue to embark on your child's education journey alongside them.

2021-2022 COVID Protocols

Please take time to review our COVID Protocols document. Here you will find specific information regarding the mitigations in place within our school environment, arrival/dismissal information, and other general information regarding our district's plan for returning to school.

COVID Testing Available On-Site

District administrators and the district's nurse have been trained and are able to administer rapid COVID tests to students and staff. A signed waiver is needed in order to use this option. Please consider completing one and sending it to school with your student so we will have it on file in the event your student is symptomatic and you would like them tested.


Students will NOT be tested unless we have permission from a parent/guardian. If we have a waiver on file, the parent/guardian will still be notified if a test is administered to their child.
