Visitors to the building:

The school is closed to all visitors except by appointment. To follow health and safety guidelines, eating lunch with your child will not be an option this year.

Riding the Bus:

Only students registered for bussing will be allowed to ride the bus. We will not be able to transport students not registered for bussing.

In the attachments is a health screener.  Please use this every morning before sending your child to school.  Also included is a decision tree document.  This form will help you determine whether your child(ren) should be sent to school.

It was exciting to see everyone from our school over the past couple of days.  I know this took time to rearrange your schedules to make this happen and I thank you for doing this.  We were able to welcome every child in our building and cannot wait to officially begin the school year on Monday!

Let me know if you have any questions after reading this information. I hope you enjoy the weekend!

Wishing you well,
Ms. Hofmann
