Health Screening

We are thrilled to resume this free program for grades 1-6 after the uncertainties we all experienced last year! While we are eager to fill the classrooms with students, they are doing so responsibly by reducing class capacity and following social distancing guidelines.  Classrooms and supplies are disinfected daily and only pre-packaged snacks are served. Pre-registration is being enforced to maintain class size.  Walk-ins will not be permitted.  We ask that if you are feeling ill, please stay home. Please review this Health Screening to help in your decision to stay home.
