    Dear Parents,

    We are ready to begin our 2022-2023 school year!  This year we are ready to get things back on track!  We are in the school building and students may wear masks covering their nose and mouth.  It is very important that students understand and practice safe, healthy habits. 

    St. Louis Public Schools has taken into account that every child may be affected by Coronavirus (Covid-19) in one way or another.  We’ve also taken several measures to ensure that instruction is not hindered.  Thank you for your support in preparing your children for this school year.  This is just the beginning of what is to come with your child’s future in education.  Please encourage your child to FOCUS and FINISH STRONG!  Remember, we are in this TOGETHER!

    All students are expected to attend class daily and on time.  Please remind your child of appropriate behavior and to stay focused during class.  Be mindful of the district class schedule.  Reminder: We have homework EVERY DAY.

    Thank you again, in advance for your support.
