The Eagle's Nest

Happy Sunday Eagles!

Welcome to the first week of the 2021-2022 school year! We are excited to see our students and look forward to working with you this year. We enjoyed seeing so many of our families at Open House this past Thursday.

We have five important reminders for you this week:

1. Kindergarten parents may walk their child to class Monday through Friday of this week only. All other families may walk their children to class on Monday only. Masks are optional, but strongly encouraged for staff, students, and essential visitors.

2. Our first bell rings at 7:30am and the tardy bell is at 8:00am.

3. School fees for all students this year are $31, this includes the technology fee, instructional fee, and art fee. Kindergartners will receive iPads and students in first through fifth grades will receive Dell laptops. Parents must sign the 1:1 paperwork that students will bring home on their first day to receive their device.

4. Breakfast and lunch are free for all students this year.

5. If you did not get a car/walk-up pick-up tag during Open House, then the tags will be sent home with your child on Monday. Until you have received your tag, please be ready show ID for pickup.
