Our goal is to maintain a safe environment for children to learn.  P L E A S E,  help us to protect you and your children when coming back to our school. 


Students and Families take an active role in trying to keep everyone safe by being honest about symptoms and when they started and not sending kids to school sick.  This is crucial to us being able to continue in person learning.  


Everyone must do their part to protect others and follow these guidelines!


  • Check Daily for symptoms before coming to school

  • Keep your physical distance – whenever possible 
    • Physical distance means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. 
    • As COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets, distance between individuals reduces risk. 
    • In classroom settings, six feet of separation is recommended when feasible.  When six feet is not feasible, a minimum of three feet of distance is acceptable as long as everyone is wearing a mask.
    • Your school will likely assign seats or designate cohorts of students to help mitigate the transmission of the virus. 
    • Please encourage your child to follow these instructions


  • Hand Hygiene –Use soap and water or hand sanitizer
    • Upon arrival to school
    • Touching any mucous membranes (eye, nose, mouth)
