ANNOUNCEMENTS:
Welcome back Vikan families! We are so excited to see students back in our building and being able to see students engage in online learning in this unprecedented time. Students have adjusted very well to this new normal for education.

Every week we will be emailing weekly communication to parents to keep you informed of what is going on in our school as well as online learning. In the email we will include a calendar with activities, all activities will be happening virtually.

Elective Class - We would like to remind you that all elective classes for all students start at 8:00 am online. They are required.

Student Health Screening - Please remember to fill out and submit the Mandatory Health Screening Form in your Parent Portal Every day your student is scheduled to be at school, even if they are absent. You will also need to call the attendance line to excuse your student. Please let us know if you need assistance signing into the parent portal or are unable to find the form.
At this time, only students and staff are allowed in the building. If you need to drop off medication or forms, please call to make an appointment. All Health Forms can be found online the 27j home page. Click on parent tab, choose Health Services from the drop down menu, click on Helpful Forms on the Left side of your screen, choose the form you need from the drop down menu.
When you arrive at the school, ring the buzzer at the front office, let us know why you are here, the name of your student, and I will meet you at the door. If you are picking up your student, follow the same process and we will bring your child out to you. Thank you for understanding and working with us to keep all students safe and healthy!

Attendance - If your student will be absent for the day, please report their absence on the attendance line at 303-655-4056. This is for all students including virtual students.
