Principal's Message


Dear Parents and Guardians,


I  want to thank and welcome you.  Thank you for your patience as we work together through this pandemic.  We have been hard at work planning the best ways we can to keep your child safe through social distancing measures, mask protocols, and frequent sanitizing of hands and surfaces.  We will be practicing social distancing in the classrooms as well as in the halls.  There are reminders and signage throughout the building not to mention the training, teaching, and leading by your child’s teacher.


Please remember that your child will be here for a half day of either AM or PM.  At this time schedules are in the mail and full and set.  If there is a need to switch, you can call the front office at extension 143 and have your child placed on a waiting list.   If there is a change by other student schedules that create this vacancy, then we can make the move. I know this is not ideal for everybody, but we must stick together during these trying times.  Together we can keep safe and keep your child’s safety, health, and education a priority.


The AM schedule will run 8:30 - 11:40.  Children can be dropped off at 8:25.

The PM schedule will run 12:15 - 3:25.  Children can be dropped off at 12:10.


When children enter the building, they will eat a meal here at school.  Grades K-2 will spread out in our cafeterias and grades 3-6 will be given a meal to eat in the classrooms.  When the children leave, all K-6 students will be given a meal to eat when they get home or to their childcare.


Thank you as we continue to support one another, practice social distancing, stay safe, stay healthy, and work together to continue educating the students of our community.
