Health and Safety
We will request all families start their morning by using the Parent and Guardian Guidance Checking Your Student Before Leaving Home to check for symptoms/conditions prior to sending the students to school. This will help support our campus in staying healthy and safe.
We will continue to require all students and staff upon entering the campus to wear masks as well to ensure a safe environment.
