We are also committed to keep students, parents, and the community updated with current information regarding COVID-19 issues as it relates to our school operations. Currently, we have a classroom teacher and a substitute custodian quarantined due to testing positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, no students or staff were in close contact with the two employees. We also have one student who recently tested positive. Eight fellow students were quarantined due to close contact with the student who tested positive. School personnel will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation in our school community. For now, we plan to continue with our current in-person educational setting.
