KEEP SICK KIDS HOME

Please DO NOT send symptomatic children to school for any reason. (Fever, cough, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, vomiting, etc.) We must err on the side of caution if we want to protect in-person learning for the majority of our school community. Thank you!

END OF DAY CHANGES

Need to last minute pick up your child from school? Or send them home on the bus? If your child’s regular end-of-day transportation needs to change between busing and parent pick up, you MUST call the office by 3 pm. This timing allows the student lists to change and teachers to be informed so we can keep track of everyone. If you call after 3 pm, we may not be able to make that change. Need to locate your student’s bus? Call 612-668-2300.
