If your child exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19, parents will be called and instructed to immediately pick up their child and take them home or make an appointment with a health care agency.

By sending your child to school each day, you are attesting that your child is free of any COVID symptoms and has not been in close contact with someone who has COVID or has been exposed to COVID.

  • Transportation is limited to Special Education. Regular transportation is suspended at this time.

  • All students will have their temperature taken and a visual wellness check for any COVID symptoms as they enter the school.

  • Students are to wait in line each morning, keeping 6 feet distance. Blue dots/prints are provided to support social distancing. Please remain in the designated areas when meeting your child for pick up, they will come to you. Please do not enter the drop off area to meet them.
