COVID-19

If any child is running a temperature, they will be sent home and COVID-19 testing is recommended.

Only the front entrance is to be used by visitors. No one will be allowed inside the school (beyond the foyer) during the school day. Parents will not be allowed to accompany their child to the classroom.

Parents checking out/in students can come in and ring the bell or call from outside and your student will meet you in the foyer.

PEP RALLIES

Pep rallies will be limited to home games and will be held on the football field, weather permitting. Parents must bring their own seating and practice social distancing.
