Dear Families,

Our students are excited about our upcoming Harvest Carnival on Friday. Only adults that are volunteering will be allowed on campus for the Harvest Carnival. We have replaced our parade with the carnival after lunch.

Volunteers on campus must show proof of vaccination at the door on 10/29 even if they have provided proof through the PTA google form. Volunteers can also show proof of a negative test that is dated up to 48 hours in advance before coming onto campus.

Since Halloween is on a Sunday, please take into account the following day is a school day. Please have students go to bed at a reasonable time so they are ready to learn on Monday. Additionally, candy is not allowed at school. Students should not bring candy to school for lunch or snacks.
