Chromebooks will also be checked in and schedules will be given.
Health Updates-Please remember that with the Holiday Break and New Years activities, we understand many gatherings may have taken place, to enjoy time with loved ones. If your child is displaying or might have symptoms of Covid-19 please keep them home and contact the school.
