Make sure all students have their masks with them prior to arrival each day! Students did a great job last week as it relates to masking up. If a mask is lost, forgotten, or if a strap breaks, we have replacements masks in the front office and in each and every classroom.

Please help keep our campus as safe and healthy as possible by keeping your student home if any of the following conditions apply:

Lost and Found

As the weather cools, students bring more apparel to school and sometimes these items end up in our lost and found. Our lost and found items are kept in our library/media center. Students can access the lost and found before and after school and during nutrition and lunch. Though students are getting older and becoming more responsible, it is still a good idea for them the have names written on the inside of jackets so that we can easily get those items back in the hands of our students. Students are discouraged from bringing non-essential items to school such as electronics, game consoles, and other devices that are not used for educational purposes.

Chromebook Issues?

If your student has an issue with their Chromebook or charger, the first stop should be our Media Center. In most cases, they can quickly diagnose whether or not the device needs to be reset or switched out entirely. The Media Center staff will have your student on their way and back in class and online in no time.
