    Important Health Information​

    ​​​​For the safety of students and teachers, students should stay home if they are ill. It is imperative that we all work together to keep everyone healthy. Also, parents should notify their child's school right away if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID. If ANYONE in the household has been tested and is awaiting test results, the student should stay home until those results are available. Thank you for your understanding. We are all in this together!​
