The school is asking that if possible parents/guardians transport their children to and from school on a daily basis. For the safety of the students and bus drivers, students who ride the bus will be required to wear a face shield or mask while they are on the bus.  They will need to have it on when they enter the bus and will wear it until they are in their classroom.  If you need your child to ride the bus, you will need to complete the transportation release form at registration. 

Water fountains will not be available for the students to use during the day, we are asking that all students bring a water bottle to school for their personal use. We will have water bottle refilling stations so that the students can refill their bottles during the day.  The bottle will need to have a  lid that seals, no straws, or open-top containers.

Due to concerns for student and staff safety, Charger Time will not be available for the school yearStudents will need to be dropped off at the gym doors no earlier than 7:40 and will be picked up at the same location.  There will be a pickup schedule handed out with registration information.  Pickup times will be no later than 4:00.

*Virtual instruction will be available. If you select virtual instruction, your child will be enrolled as a virtual student through October 22, 2020, at which time parents will meet with the virtual classroom team and determine if this continues to be the best educational setting for your child.   Virtual instruction will require the student to log in to assignments and videos on a daily basis.  Teachers will be making contact with all students multiple times during the week.  Virtual instruction will have the same expectations as a seated class.
