Important Reminders

  • Please keep in mind that children with a fever are not allowed to return to school until being fever free for 24 hours without medicine.

  • If you bring something to school for your child during the school day please drop it off in the office. Taking items to the classrooms is disruptive and interrupts learning.
  • Please take time to recognize an outstanding teacher or staff member by clicking the button at the bottom of the newsletter. Staff recognition is really appreciated!
