What a wonderful time for a break. As we resume the school year, look forward to the end of winter, and welcome back the light, I hope our students, faculty and families can stay healthy.
Please remember to keep your child home if she/he is ill. Preventing the spread of illness will keep our school up and running during this stretch of instruction time.
I look forward to seeing smiling faces this week.

As always, we remind you to pack an extra snack when your child has an activity as there is no time to go to cafeteria before the start of activities. Also, please remember to pick your child up promptly at the end of the activity as sponsors might have other responsibilities afterwards and should not be expected to stay longer.
Students are expected to follow the school code "BE RESPONSIBLE, BE RESPECTFUL, BE SAFE" in the co-curricular program, too.
