We continuously evaluate our practices and procedures and modify them as needed for added safety measures.  We have added safety precautions to our current practices.  Every change and effort made, is to continue to protect our students, staff and parents from COVID-19.    

COVID-19 vaccines are approved for anyone over 6 month old.
