The school will remain locked but students can pick up personal items, materials for learning from home, and medications from the high school from 9-12p or 1-3p with a personal escort by a staff member. This is a one time allowance for entry during the school closure for needed items.
Call the school office (432-0707) for notification or stop and use the front door call button. Students will be individually escorted (6' or more distances) to their locker and back so we can wipe down any touched surfaces.
