5th Grade Relocation

Due to the new CDC guidelines allowing student social distancing to be reduced from 6 feet to 3 feet, we are relocating our 5th-grade class back to their classroom from the Library beginning Monday, March 29th.  Students will still be required to wear masks.  Because CDC guidelines state that students who are not wearing masks and eating should be at 6 feet of social distancing, we will be requiring our 5th-grade class to eat breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria at the appropriate distance.  Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
