Hello Bulldog Families,
Great job on a successful Hybrid Schedule with students on campus last week with TK/K-8th graders. Thank you for checking your child for COVID-19 symptoms each day before sending them to school. Students did a great job with keeping their distancing and wearing masks. Keep up the great work. 
Again, our success in re-opening school in this Hybrid model will help determine the ability to remain open.  Please see the reminders of requirements below.  We thank you for your continued support. as we safely, successfully go to school. 
Stay Strong Bulldogs!

Daily Health Check: Each parent or guardian must check their child for COVID-19 symptoms before sending them to school each day. Please do not send your child to school if they have any of the symptoms listed below.  We realize that students have asthma, allergies and other conditions that display symptoms that could be mistaken for COVID-19. If that is the case, please communicate with the school office so that your child is not mistakenly identified as a possible COVID 19 case. DO NOT send your child to school if they have a fever over 100 degrees. Also, please do not mask the fever with a fever-reducing medication and then send them to school. We understand the need for fever reduction medication, but please keep children home until the fever subsides for at least 24 hours so we can continue to keep our classroom and schools open.  Please do not send your child to school if they have: 
fever, cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell  vomiting or diarrhea or extreme fatigue.
Temperature Checks – In addition to parents/guardians checking at home, your child’s temperature will be checked at school.  We require temperature checks each morning for students entering the school campus. Our goal is to minimize the risk of spread should a student or staff member demonstrate symptoms associated with COVID-19. 
Face-Coverings – Staff and students must wear face coverings while on campus and maintain six feet of distance from others.  Please send them to school with a face covering or we will provide them with one.   If they have a face-covering they are used to wearing, that would be best. Failure to comply may result in a student being excluded from in-person instruction. Please contact the office if you have any questions about this requirement.
