3- There is still time to purchase the Kidstuff coupon book that came home with your youngest child. If you wish to not purchase the book, please send it back to your child’s teacher or contact

4-The PTA has brought back the straw bale outdoor learning area again this year. This provides our children the opportunity to interact with nature and learn outside of the traditional classroom. In an effort to keep the bales as long as possible please discourage your children from playing on them at drop off or dismissal.

From Our Health Department

The majority of our students are following mask expectations each day and all day. As a reminder it is the district expectation that all students wear masks appropriately (covering their nose and mouth) while inside the school building and on buses.

Please emphasize the importance of this expectation. We need to maintain safe and consistent practices and avoid defiance issues.
