Principal’s Message
We’ve asked our students to mask up to help our school building stay open. Their cooperation (with your support) has been overwhelmingly positive. We love seeing the creative and distinctive masks that many times reflect the student’s unique personality. Sure a few of our students have to be reminded to keep their mask on, but our student body has really stepped up in this mask wearing endeavor. In fact, our students have been so dedicated to wearing them that, when they forget theirs at home, they head right to our nurse or the office for a replacement. And while we still have some masks on hand, it will help our supply level if every studentcould keep a spare in their back-pack for those days they accidently head into our school building without a mask.
 
Speaking of things to wear, below you’ll see the list of what many of our students will be wearing this week.
 
Thanks for taking a look at the Newsletter.
Greg Howard, Principal
