Dear Zion Parents:
Attached are this week’s Blue Notes along with several attachments (Love Project, Candy Grams and Sampson T-shirts).
COVID Reminders: We have had an increased number of COVID cases at school. Masks (covering the mouth and nose) are required at school and all school related events. With families gathering over the holidays, please remember to not send your child to school if they have any symptoms of COVID -19. If we have to send them home with COVID like symptoms then they can not return until they are symptom free and have a negative test result.
Our students are practicing for our Christmas programs that are coming up. We hope you and your family members plan on attending. Masks are required.
