Happy Monday. We miss seeing our students and hope everyone is doing well. We’ve been impressed with how hard everyone is still working. We know this is a stressful time for you and our goal is to support you. Your child’s homeroom teacher should be reaching out to you this week to check in and offer help. We are updating our website and Facebook site daily with resources. Our school office is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 until 1:00.

We have meal distribution taking place Monday and Wednesday from 12-1. During that time, you can also pick up week 1 grade level packets if you would like additional resources beyond what your teacher has provided. We will be adding those resources to our website on Wednesday too.  Moving forward, we will have activity packets available for pick up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Friday from 9:00 to 1:00. However, you can drive through on Monday and Wednesday and we will provide it through the meal distribution line. If these times do not work for you, please let us know. We will label packets with your name and leave them outside the front doors in a tote. This will make them available for pick up at your convenience. We will also begin taking paper packets back after they are completed this week to allow teachers opportunities to give more feedback on student work. These can be dropped off at any of the pick-up times. Packets may also be accessed and returned digitally, and teachers will give you more information about this. 

We have contact Lifetouch about spring pictures and they will be delivered to the school shortly. We will send out another message regarding how to pick those up once they arrive. If you are still wanting a yearbook please contact your teacher and they will help you take care of reserving one.
