We are excited to welcome students back for On Campus Learning with practical measures in place to mitigate the spread of disease.


Self-Monitoring & Building Access

  • Employees and families will be expected to self-monitor temperatures and other COVID-19 symptoms daily with the expectation that no one will report to school if any symptoms are present.
  • Visitors, including parents and guardians, will not be allowed in offices, classrooms, or other school premises.

  • If necessary, additional spaces throughout the building may be used for meal time to allow for increased physical distancing.
  • Students will wash or sanitize their hands before and after meals.
  • All school meals are available free of charge for all students through June 30, 2022.
