A Note From the Principal
Thank you for a wonderful first week back. With the health and safety of your scholars in mind, we are changing Wednesday's half day to a full remote learning day. Additional information is listed below.
Please ensure your scholar is coming to school each day with two masks. If their primary mask breaks, having a secondary mask in their backpack will limit academic disruptions. Please monitor your scholar for COVID-19 symptoms daily. If your scholar has been exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 or may be exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, please keep your scholar home, schedule a COVID-19 test, and notify the school so we can properly track your scholar's absences. We all need to do our part to ensure all scholars are kept healthy and that instruction can continue in person.
January 12 is Now a Remote Learning Day
Packets will be sent home on Tuesday for scholars to complete. They will be due back on Thursday, January 13, 2022. These packets will be taken for a grade, as well as, used for attendance purposes.

Please ensure that your scholar(s) comes to school each day with two masks, one properly fitted on their face upon arrival to school and an extra mask in their backpack for emergency use. Scholars that arrive at school without a mask will not be permitted to exit vehicles for temperature checks or enter our building. Masks should fit snugly over the nose, mouth, and chin. We will no longer be providing disposal masks for scholars except in the event of an extreme emergency.
At the beginning of the school year, all families received car placards with their scholars’ names. When picking your scholar(s) up each day, please have your families’ car placard placed on your windshield identifying your scholar(s). This will help us speed up our dismissal process and ensure the safety and security of our scholars, faculty, and staff. If you are in need of a new placard, please call and notify our front office, and we will send home a new placard with the oldest scholar in your family.
No Visitor Policy
Due to the highly transmissible COVID-19 0micron variant, we will be implementing a NO visitor policy at our school campus until further notice. We are strongly committed to keeping the health and safety of our scholars, families, faculty, and staff our top priority. All parent meetings and conferences will be held via phone or video calls. In the event that your scholar(s) arrive late to school or need to be picked up early please call and notify our front office administrator of the event. We will accommodate extreme emergencies and extenuating circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
