September 2021

Dear Families,

Monday, September 6 is Labor Day & a school holiday. Please make a note of it.

Health and Safety Tips:

Please keep your child at home if they are experiencing a fever, cold symptoms, or have had known exposure to anyone who has been ill.

Please contact our school office by 2:30pm if arrangements for your child's transportation from school have changed. This will allow us time to notify your child before the end of their school day. Please do not drop off students prior to 8:45am, as there is no adult supervision on our playground prior to this time. Thank you!

We'd like to thank all our families who are bused for their patience and grace during our start of the school year transportation woes. We appreciate you!

Our K - 6th grade students are being assessed in Reading and Math, so that we may design appropriate lessons to meet their specific academic needs. Please be sure your child is rested before arriving at school.

Our first PTO Meeting this school year is on Tuesday, September 7 by Virtual Invitation. Please email: to be added to our Virtual PTO Meeting. PTO Meetings are the first Tuesday of every month, 4:30 - 5:30pm. We look forward to welcoming you!
