Student Health and Accountability Protocols

Thank you to everyone who has turned in their Student Health/Accountability Protocol Form. If you have not sent your child’s form in, please do so as soon as possible. If you need an additional copy, please let your child’s teacher know. Please make sure you read the student health and accountability protocols found here. A signature page was sent home last week for you to acknowledge that you have read and understand the expectations outlined. 


If you have not had the chance to watch this video, take a moment to see what the students chose for me and Mrs. Griffin to do as a reward for meeting their ISTATION goal! Special thanks to our PTA President, Stacey Webb, for creating the video and our magnet coordinator, Dr. McKeown, for directing!
