If your child has 2 or more of these symptoms please keep them home. If you have any questions regarding your child's symptoms please feel free to call the nurse at 574-546-3554. Facial coverings are also highly recommended. Please do your part to keep our students and staff safe.

Just a reminder, Breakfast and Lunch will be no charge this coming school year. USDA issued pandemic flexibilities for schools through June 2022. We will continue to provide safe, healthy meals free of charge to children as the pandemic continues to threaten the food and nutrition of our most vulnerable. Also any student that needs a meal modification due to a child's physical or mental impairment, must have a Special Dietary Needs Medical Statement Form and must be signed by a Physician/Medical Authority before any meal accommodations will be made. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or 574-546-3554
