Stay Safe, Stay Healthy

With the new guidelines released by the DOH yesterday, it is critical that our community remain vigilant in adhering to public health protocols. Please help our community stay healthy this winter break: keep washing hands frequently, practicing social distancing, and wearing a mask when you leave your home. The more we adhere to these guidelines, the sooner we'll be able to reopen our schools.
