COVID update, Holiday Drive, Spirit Week & Spelling Bee

COVID Testing and Vaccine Mandate

Our district uses an outside company to conduct all weekly COVID testing on our campus.  That company, for unknown reasons, was absent today from our site.  If your child was signed up for our original weekly COVID testing, they were not tested today.  Testing will resume next week only for those students that are signed up for weekly COVID testing.  Beginning in January unvaccinated students will be tested weekly and will need to sign up for testing through Primary.  

If your child is fully vaccinated (no matter their age) and you have not submitted it yet, please send in a picture of your child’s vaccination card to  If your child is 12, proof of vaccination or exemptions are due no later than January 31st.

The 2021 Holiday Drive is in full swing!
