The District is using a new communication tool to send information to parents. You can receive phone calls as well as texts from the District, school and your child’s teacher. This tool is just for sending information. You will not be able to respond to anything that you receive. If you have blocked the school or district number, you will not receive any messages at all from any sender. Please make sure that you have a working phone number on file with the school and if it changes, please let us know as soon as possible. Texts that you receive will come from 606-80.
Everyone is aware of the increased number of positive cases in our area. We are following all protocols at school to keep everyone safe and healthy. Parents, we need your help in slowing the spread:
· If someone living in your household is tested for COVID, do not send your child to school.
· Call the school and speak to the nurse
· Communicate with your child’s teacher about his/her school work
· If a positive result is received, call the school and talk to the nurse. She will advise you on quarantine days for your student.
· Upon receiving a negative result, please contact the nurse to learn your next steps.
Constant communication with the school and our nurse is VERY IMPORTANT in us helping to keep everyone safe!

If your child is virtual, please make sure that they have an appropriate place at home to view their lessons on the Chromebook. It is important that they sit at a table or desk to do their assignments and that they log on at the beginning of the class. Adult supervision is needed to ensure that students stay online and complete assignments in a timely manner.
Please make sure your child takes care of their Chromebook at all times. Find a safe place at home, away from small children and pets, to store the Chromebook when not in use. The plastic cases were purchased to transport, store and protect the Chromebook. A child should not be allowed to eat or drink while using the Chromebook. If a liquid is spilled in the Chromebook, it will not work. ONLY the student should be using the Chromebook to complete his/her school assignments. Other children or adults should not be using the device. Fees will be charged to parents for repair of Chromebooks and equipment. Parents, thank you for making sure your child brings the case back to school on the appropriate days.
Tub Replacement: $10
Chromebook Screen: $100
