    Hello Warrior Families:

    Thank you again for your flexibility and understanding during this second week of winter weather. We look forward to returning to regular schedules as we move past this weather and appreciate your continued understanding and flexibility with the unpredictable nature of the weather.

    Wanted: Used PrideWear

    If you have PrideWear that is no longer needed, please consider donating it back to the school so that we have a stock of PrideWear that we can give to students in need. Additionally, if your child has borrowed PrideWear from the school at any point in the year, please encourage them to return the PrideWear to the school so that we can replenish our supply. Thank you!

    Stay Healthy!

    Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, and it can last as late as May. During this time we want to remind you that keeping your student home when they are sick is an important way to help prevent the spread of germs that cause illnesses.

    Learn more here → and here → Remember that hand-washing is the number one way to prevent the spread of illness! Here is a video or two for more information.

    Have a great week!
