Bucket Fillers for the week of April 12th!
POST SPRING BREAK NOTE.... We are excited to have everyone back on Monday! As we head into the end of the year, we ask that you do not let your guard down! If you traveled and you hear at any point you were around a positive case - stay home until you and/or your child get tested. If you were at a large group gathering and you find a positive case arises from this gathering - stay home until you and your child get tested. If you or your child have any symptoms, air on the side of caution - get tested. Continue to wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands. We can finish this year if we all work together!
