Happy Monday! I am so excited to begin our week. I look forward to hearing your voices today and seeing your sweet faces soon. Today we are going to work on completing the training that you will need to get your webcam turned on.


I will be going through the Webcam Safety Course with your child today. Please review the video again at home (linked below and in Google Classroom) and have your child complete the quiz. When these two things are finished, a parent will need to complete the consent form and return it to school. You can print the form and return it or come by the school to fill one out.

Please be sure to complete the Check-In each morning. This is very important! Have you completed the webcam quiz? If not, please do that today.


Please return the webcam parental consent form as soon as your child completes the quiz. You can come by the office to complete a form or you can print one off at home.
