“The Basics” - Key information in a snapshot
All families must complete daily temperature checks at home before sending their child to school
A Bi-weekly Health Screening Questionnaire will also need to be completed by families.
This year, in order to promote the learning of all children while meeting all safety guidelines, a Cohort Model is being used. All UPK-5 students will remain in their classroom for the duration of the school day, including meals, recess, & all special area classes.
Optimally, in good weather, students can enjoy learning outside, while maintaining the appropriate social distance for the activity.
Grade 3-5 students will be offered a pre-packaged “grab & go” breakfast; the same will be delivered to UPK-2 students. All students who are buying a lunch meal will have it delivered to their classroom daily, observing all allergy needs.
