Dear Parents and Guardians,


We are in the home stretch with 12 days of school left for this school year! Students’ last day is June 4th. It is extremely important that your child continues to participate and meet with their teachers as noted in their Google Classrooms. Attendance is taken and it is based on your child’s participation in the meets and in assignments that are completed and turned in to their teachers.  

Teachers have been coming into school and closing their classrooms. One of the steps in closing is to gather any left student items and label them for their students.


There is a strict schedule to when students may come to pick up their remaining items they have left at school.  As we prepare for the last item pick-up, students must need to wear a mask and only 10 students at a time will be admitted into the school.


Kindergarten and Third grade are allowed to come this Friday, May 22nd from 8:30am until 6:30 pm. only.

First and Fourth grade are allowed to come in on Tuesday, May 26th from 11:30am until 6:30pm only.

Second and Fifth grade are allowed to come in on Wednesday, May 27th from 11:30am until 6:30pm only.


At this time, only class pictures and left student items are available for pick up. The yearbooks still have not arrived.


If your child took everything home, then your child should not come to the building until we have a community get together to celebrate our 5th graders and PTO family game event.  


Here are some other updates and reminders:


Kindergarten registration is still open. Any guardian may go to In the yellow COVID box on the right hand side is a link for registration for 2020-2021.


Thank you to everyone who adopted a 5th grader (or two) and delivered special surprises for them.
