Take Note! Please read!

“We also know that we are experiencing an extremely minimal influenza season this year. So just understand that the common cold is no longer common this year. If you start to experience cold or flu-like symptoms, it would be wise to seek a COVID-19 test”.

If you need the links to the at-home or return request forms, please email Ms. Rorey: Remember that you should expect to wait 24 hours before you are approved by the school. Therefore, do not submit the request late in the evening or early in the morning and assume that you will immediately have permission to attend online or return to school. Thank you!

An Important Message From Mr. Thorsen and Mrs. Zalac

As you likely read in today’s eSpartan we have seen an increase in positive COVID-19 cases.  This evening, we are quarantining 17 more students through contact tracing efforts.  If you are quarantined then you will receive a separate email stating this and the date of the return to school.  Please be vigilant in your efforts to stay healthy and safe.  This also includes making good decisions throughout quarantine.  If you are not quarantined, but concerned then please know we support whichever decisions you need to make related to at home learning.  Our first priority is health and well being.  If you are not feeling well, please stay home and reach out to the US office.

Thank you and take good care,

Mr. Thorsen and Mrs. Zalac

Cleaning Supplies and Masks Drive

The first grade to fill their tubs (in the SA Myers Gallery) with cleaning supplies, wipes and masks wins a dress down day! The grade that has the most at the end of the month wins donuts!


Please help us stay healthy so we can continue to be together!


Thank you so much for being diligent about wearing your masks! A few of you are still having trouble and for clarification, here is the process for you:
1. A faculty member will give you a warning.
2. After the warning, that faculty member will infract you and you will serve detention. This will be communicated to your parents as well.
3. After you serve detention, if another infraction occurs, you, your advisor, and your parents will meet with Mrs. Zalac and there will be escalated consequences.

Clubs meet Wednesdays 9:15-9:45! Look out for an email from your club leaders!
