News & Updates

This week we welcomed back the last wave of students for in-person learning. It has been great to see students back in our buildings, getting direct support from their teachers, interacting with their friends, and simply being kids again. We are, however, tracking some concerning data when it comes to COVID-19 cases in our community and state.

Tonight, during a special meeting of the Board of Education, we updated our reintroduction plans. All students will now have the opportunity to return to in-person learning before the end of this month

We are requesting donations to defray our school’s expenses for instructional materials and our two online reading tools, Accelerated Reader (grades 3-5) and Lexia (1st-2nd grades). Our PTO has generously supported these financial costs for our teachers in years past, but this is a tight year for school budgets. We are requesting a donation of $20 per student to support your classroom teachers’ expenses in the classroom (both online and in-person), and $10 per student for the subscriptions to Lexia or Accelerated Reader. Some grades have requested fees for subscriptions to in-class periodicals - please visit for information and instructions on how to submit payment. On behalf of your child’s teachers, I thank you all for supporting our school with these donations!
