Wrapping Up the School Year
Our last day of school is Tuesday, June 9. Students will still have attendance activities both days, but their school work will focus on finishing up the school year, celebrating, and building community. Students will have activities by grade level on Monday and activities by learning community on Tuesday. Congratulations on a successful year to all of our students!
Bridging Ceremony
As our year comes to a close, we like to recognize our eighth-grade students who are moving on to high school. To commemorate our students, our staff compiled a digital bridging ceremony in this time of distance learning. View the bridging ceremony by clicking on the link below.

Community Resource: Food Assistance
Families who use MFIP or SNAP or receive free/reduced lunch--you are likely eligible for Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a temporary food benefit available to Minnesota families with children who would have received free or reduced-price meals if schools were open. Families with eligible children will receive a one-time payment of $325 per child on a new or existing EBT card to help fill the gap created by a loss of school meals.

Summer Immunizations
Summer is a good time for students to get their annual exam for updated immunizations that are required in middle school. This can also be used as an opportunity to get a sports physical so students are prepared for when sport opportunities become available again. Sports physicals are good for 3 years and transfer to and from schools within the SPPS system. See immunization and sports physical document for more information. Please contact Nurse Vanessa if you have any questions regarding this. Stay well!
