From The Principal

Collins’ Families,

With our students coming back in person, I would like to enlist in your assistance with speaking to your children about proper mask wearing (fitted masks worn above the nose), frequent hand washing, and socially distancing when possible. Our staff is partnering with you on frequently educating our students here at school as well. Please remember to wear your masks when bringing and picking up your children as well.

Best Regards,

Jena Lenz

Collins’ Principal
