Please pick up and submit applications at the school.

We are pulling together a Little Dribbler's scrimmage for tomorrow afternoon. All COVID protocols will be followed and we have limited gym capacity, so here are the details: Each player can have two fans attend. Each fan must have a ticket with the player's name on it (these are being sent home today). Each ticket is only good for one game. Everyone will wear masks except when actively playing on the court- even if vaccinated. Social distancing on the bleachers will be maintained. We plan to live broadcast the games. Go Eagles!

Masks will still be required when meeting in groups of 25 or more. -Students All students, Grades 3 and up, should continue to wear masks or face coverings in common areas, at lunch, when in large groups (25 or more people), or when doing group work in the classroom. Masks do not need to be worn in the classroom while doing independent work, sitting at their desks, or while moving about the classroom. -Non-Vaccinated Staff (2 or less Doses or <2 Weeks Post Dose) Non-vaccinated staff will still be required to wear a mask or face shield in school or district office common areas, or in their classroom when conducting individual or small group discussions. Principals will still need to monitor non-vaccinated staff on a daily basis and record on their daily COVID checklist. -Schools will still continue to operate on an "illness free" status. Staff or students that do not feel well should continue to stay home and document their return to school or work with a note from the clinic
