Good Morning Explorers and Parents,

As most of you know vaccines are available and if you have any issues, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Also with regards to masks we are following CDC guidelines. If you are fully vaccinated a mask is no longer required. If you have not been vaccinated, CDC still recommends that you continue to wear a mask . We appreciate those that have been sick have been responsible enough to stay at home. We ask that you continue with this practice. It was announced at Tower Day this past Saturday that ride alongs are going to start again June 1, 2021. In order to ride, you must already be ride approved and vaccinated. For ride requests, you need to follow guidelines and submit your requests to Mrs. Smith.
