Heath and Safety in Our Schools

Schools are distributing free, take-home COVID-19 rapid test kits to any students or staff who exhibit COVID-like symptoms or have been in a classroom where a positive case has been identified. Anyone who tests positive on a take-home test should immediately report it to the school and begin isolating. No proof of a negative result is required in order for these students to enter the school building. If you need Covid-19 rapid test kits please contact the school.


All students will attend school 5 days a week in person.

Remote Learning Instructions when needed

We ask all families to ensure that their child has access to Google Classroom and that they understand how to access the site independently.

For details regarding your child's class, including resources, teacher expectations, and daily assignments, visit the student's teacher page.

Expectations for Students:

  • When teachers are conducting online classes, student should show up on time and ready to go.
  • Sit at a table or desk if possible (no PJs!)
  • Turn off any distractions, such as televisions, phones, or noisy devices.
