Vaccine Card Information

If your child(ren) are vaccinated against Covid, please help our nurse and staff by uploading the information to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. This information helps staff determine accurate quarantine information during the contact tracing process. Go here to find the directions on how to upload the vaccine information in English or here for Español.


Weekly Covid testing available for our students

One way to stop the spread of COVID is by registering to have your child tested weekly on Mondays at school with a saliva PCR. Surveillance COVID testing is available for students through Mirimus, Inc. Sign your child up here!
