I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving break. Monday (11/29) will be a maroon day, and we will have 18 school days remaining in 2021 before the winter/holiday break (which will run from 12/23 - 01/02). Let’s make the most of the next 18 days so as to finish 2021 on a positive note!
Students are reminded that masks are required in all school facilities and on all school transportation vehicles (before, during, and after school hours). The mask must be covering both your mouth AND nose. Teachers are required to maintain accurate seating charts and students need to sit where they have been assigned to sit in the event that we have to do a close contact tracing. Students are also expected to sit in an assigned seat during their lunch block. Your cooperation with these expectations is GREATLY appreciated!
