Facemasks Required Next Week, Nov 8-12

November 5, 2021: We are sorry to report that we have had 5 positive COVID cases, as of now, just this week alone. We suspect this is a result of all of the gatherings and events over Halloween weekend. Thankfully so far no one is hospitalized, but with volleyball playoffs and potential greater spread at school, we are asking all students/staff to wear masks next week to see if we can stop the spread. This will also help ensure that our volleyball team members can play in competitions potentially this next week. Thank you for your cooperation.
