We will have an In Person Learning Plan until further notice. Students will be in the building Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with Wednesdays virtual for all. The number of positive cases in St. Louis County and in our school show that our students and staff can be in the building without the stricter guidelines of the Hybrid Learning Model. We thank you for your continued support of socially distancing and wearing your mask.

If your child is sick please keep them home.
