A Message from Principal Jenkins


Hello Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to school!!! We are excited to start a new year. We are eager to see the students and experience time together. The pandemic isn’t over, so we will try to bring back as much normal (and fun) as possible, as safely as possible. We will faithfully implement policies set by the District and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. Masks are required for the first 10 days and when CDC levels are high. We will continue outdoor lunch.

I invite you to get involved this year. We look forward to seeing parents volunteer in the school and schoolyard. We appreciate your input and partnership with our school staff. Our next SAC meeting is Tuesday, December 13th at 6:00pm. Registration here.

Students learn when they are in school. Here is the attendance policy from the School District of Philadelphia. We look forward to seeing students every day! Thank you for your continued support.
