Absences due to illness: For the current school year, students will be able to return to school when they are fever free for 24 hours and have significantly improved symptoms. Families have the option to keep a student home longer if they choose. Quarantines will not be mandated for students and staff that have been exposed to an illness.

End of Day Pick-up: Please take a moment to read the end of day pick-up emails from Principal Brian Koetje, so you are aware of the guidelines. Thank you!

Grandparents Day Update: Grandparents Day will be moving to the Spring. We are still making a final decision, but it will be either May 5 or 12, which will become a half day of school. We will keep October 14 as a half day of school in order to have a professional development session with the teachers.

If you need to contact the office via email, please use the email address.

Please be sure to call the school office or notify your child's teacher by 8:00am if your child will be tardy or absent for the day. Thank you so much!
