Please do not come to class if you are sick, even if you have a negative COVID-19 test. If a student comes to class and has obvious symptoms, they will be asked to wait in the office while we phone their parents to pick them up. Important Note: If a student has been sick in the last 10 days, we ask that they wear a mask in class. Please keep in mind that there are vulnerable people in our community -- and as we all know, no one needs another virus.
