TODAY’S NEWS

Welcome Back Everyone  

We hope you had a nice week and were able enjoy some beautiful weather and a break from the usual routine. We are happy everyone is back and ready to end the year strong.

A quick reminder that in order to return in person next week, we need to receive Covid test results from all adults in your household and from students in 3rd to 8th grade. Scheduling the test about a week before your child’s return is a good idea.

We do hope that next year, having a vaccination card will take the place of testing, but for now we are still asking for test results. 

Please email the results to: mstrudyyoung@gmail.com when you get them. Thank you for your help with this.
