Notes and Reminders

Water Bottles and Sun Block!

Please have your children or help your children apply sunblock before they come to school. We will support children in reapplying as needed. Also, we encourage all elementary children to bring a water bottle to school; it can be as simple as a washed out and recycled juice bottle with your child’s name. Thank you for helping us keep your children safe and healthy in the warm weather!
