Parents must wait outside for student dismissal. Due to COVID protocols, we can NOT accommodate early PICK UP for students so please make arrangements for prompt pick up at 2:55 PM.


    All students will have a temperature check and must wear a mask to before they can enter the building. It is VERY important that no students attend school if they are sick or have any COVID related symptoms. ALL students must have an updated Emergency Form with at least two alternate contacts in the case of emergency. Please keep students at home if they are sick and notify the school immediately if they have come into contact with any person who has tested positive for COVID 19.  We are working to keep everyone safe. Any students with obvious COVID symptoms will be sent to an Isolation Room and parent/guardian pick up is required within 30 minutes.
