Return to Campus


As we began the year in distance learning, our faculty, staff, and Covid-19 Task Force Team were busy preparing our campus for the eventual return to in-person instruction. On October 7,2020, our school applied through the county for a waiver to allow in-person instruction for grades TK-2. The county approved the request. We are excited to share with you our campus reopened for in-person instruction for students in grade TK-2. Our students in 3rd through 6th grade returned on February 22, 2021.  Grades 7th and 8th returned on Monday, March 15, 2021.  Some students will remain in distance learning due to their parent's choice. However, the teachers will continue to provide an excellent distance instruction and prepare for when we are allowed to welcome them back to campus.


We acknowledge that we are still facing the challenges of a pandemic. Therefore, we have made adjustments to in-person instruction and on-campus routines to ensure the health and safety of our entire school community. This document outlines the adjustments that we have made in alignment with public health guidelines.
