Proper notification was given to all parties involved and CDC guidelines were followed. We will revert to full COVID-19 protocols effective immediately.

-High-touch areas must be cleaned regularly. 

-Fist bumps are allowed. No handshakes or hugs.

-Assigned seating and seating charts must be maintained in every classroom.

-Wash hands regularly.
