COVID REPORTING AND STUDENT QUARANTINE GUIDELINES

If your child tested positive and/or is a close contact with someone who tested positive, please be sure to contact the school nurse or principal via this linked form   if you have not already done so.  Thank you for your cooperation in this important matter.
