Safety Reminders and Appreciation
  • Great job of wearing your mask over your nose, mouth, and chin! This is our best defense to keep people in school.
  • 10th and 11th grade students please eat the first half of the lunch mod. Mod 4, 6, 8, or 10.
  • 9th and 12th grade students please eat the second half of the lunch mod. Mod 5, 7, 9, 11.
  • Please observe the no seating signs on the tables. This is to help us spread out as much as possible in the Courtyard. 
  • When eating please eat first, mask up, then talk. By minimizing the time with a mask we minimize the need to quarantine people when we do have a positive COVID situation.
