Covid 19/Flu Cases

We need your assistance.  Please contact the school if any of the following occurs:

  • If you are told by your doctor to quarantine for COVID-19 symptoms
  •  
  • If a person in your household test positive for COVID-19
  •  
  • If you are concerned that you have been exposed to COVID-19

Please contact Heather Brandenburg and/or William Mayes via phone or email.  This information helps the school/district with contact tracing and management of COVID-19 protocols.  This also ensures that we are coding student attendance appropriately.

Lost and found:

Please make sure your students are writing their name on their belongings.  We have several items in our lost and found which is located by the cafeteria.  Please encourage your student to check lost and found if they are missing items.


A/B Hybrid Days

On their off days, students are required to complete ALL assignments given by their teachers.  Their “at home” days are an extension of learning from the previous day.  These assignments are graded and are not pass/fail like E-Learning last year.  The assignments need to be completed on the day they are given.  Please remember that our teachers are teaching another group of students on your child’s off day.  They will not be available for immediate response because they are teaching another group.
