Packet Pickup

Virtual packet pickup will continue every Friday morning from 7:00-8:00 a.m. during the second semester. This drive-by moves quickly and just requires two volunteers to exchange folders for the week. The school will have everything prepared and ready for volunteers. Please sign up HERE if you can help!

Health and Wellness Reminder

As we enter these winter months of school, it’s more important than ever to be vigilant about our health. If your child is sick or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, or if they have been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please stay home. Please also remember to fill out your Daily Wellness Screenings in Skyward. Classes will continue to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and have scheduled hand washing breaks throughout the day. By doing the right things, we will keep each other healthy and safe.
