What's New

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. This year will be like no other school year in history. 

Below are Covid-19 mitigation requirements when students are in school. There is additional information for parents important to the starting of this school year.

See the Bell Schedule tab under students for the specific class schedule as we start the school year.


MITIGATION ACTIONS REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS:

  • Masks are required to be worn at all times while on the school bus and when in the school.

  • Face shields do NOT replace face masks at any time. They may be worn in addition to masks.

  • Maintain 6 foot social distancing when in hallways, in classrooms, and where possible.

  • Handwashing with soap and warm water often reduces the spread of bacteria, germs, and the coronavirus.

  • Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the building for your use. Only a droplet is necessary at one time.

  • Drinking fountains should be used to fill cups or water bottles. Do not drink directly from the fountain-head. Cups are provided. Place used cups in trash cans immediately after use.

  • Sanitizing wipes are available for students to clean work areas.


OTHER ITEMS;

  • School lockers will be unavailable until all students can return to school.

  • The Girls and Boys locker rooms will be unavailable during the reduced person schedule.

  • We have increased our clean of common surfaces and restroom areas to multiple times per day for your safety.

  • The school can not authorize any bus passes while we have limited bus capacity. Students can be picked up by a parent but must only ride their assigned bus.

  • Inclement weather days will be remote learning days for all students. Students and parents should be prepared that if we close school due to weather students will have to complete a daily assignment. 


HEALTH SAFETY:


We are only as safe as we practice safe procedures.

  • If your child is not feeling well, please keep them at home and send to school a note the next day.

  • If your child is experiencing covid-19 symptoms, contact your health care provider AND the school nurse.

  • If your child was exposed, contact your health care provider and the school nurse.

  • If your child has a Covid-19 test, report the result to the school nurse.

  • If your child becomes ill while at school, the school nurse will contact you to pick them up from school.

  • Hand washing is important. Wash your hands multiple times per day with soap and warm water.

  • Apply hand sanitizer if hand washing is not possible.

  • Avoid touching your mask and face.

  • Cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow

  • Resist high-fives, hugs, and close contact with others.

  • Do not share drinks or food with others.
