Starting Back 5 Days Per Week on September 30th

All students that are currently attending school "in person" will return to school full-time, 5 days per week, starting on September 30th. We must continue to follow the established safety guidelines. 
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, students and staff should continue to:
- Perform daily health checks for the symptoms of COVID-19. 
- Practice Social Distancing
- Wear Face Coverings
- Practice Good Hygiene

In the re-opening plan, Plan A states that masks must be worn in all areas where people cannot social distance (bus, hallways, classrooms not at 6' social distance), HOWEVER
**During the Statewide Facial Covering Mandate, masks must continue to be worn at all times while in the building.**

Athletic Event Protocol REMINDERS

It is a PRIVILEGE to play sports and it is a PRIVILEGE to watch our kids play sports. The student-athletes are doing what they need to do to make these seasons happen. Parents MUST to do the same. It is VITAL when you attend events to WEAR YOUR MASK and keep yourself and your family socially distanced from others in the stands. It will only cause problems for our student-athletes if the adults can not do what they need to. Please be considerate and courteous to everyone. This is the same protocol for both home events and away events. If you are not wearing a mask, you will be asked to leave. If we cannot handle this, we will be forced to restrict fans from being in attendance. It does not matter what you think about the policy. It is the policy that we have been given and must enforce. If you want to watch your kids play it is very simple... WEAR YOUR MASK AND PRACTICE SOCIAL DISTANCING.

The Start to School

It has been a great start to school. It is wonderful seeing the students again and settling into a "somewhat normal" routine. First and foremost, I want to say how proud I have been of the students at school. They have done a great job wearing their face masks while at school. They have adjusted quite well and are doing what they need to in order to be at school. Obviously there have been some other adjustments and a little bit of a learning curve for everyone with the blended model. Students are learning to be responsible on those days when they are at home. Please encourage them at home to get accomplished what they need to for each class. Those days at home are days of school in which they need to work. 
The sports seasons are in full swing now. Just a few reminders with this. it is a privilege to play sports and it is a privilege to watch our kids play sports. The students are doing what they need to do to make these seasons happen. Parents need to do the same. It is vital when you attend events to wear your mask and keep yourself and your family socially distanced from others in the stands. It will only cause problems for our student-athletes if the adults do not do what they need to. Please be considerate and courteous to everyone.
