Colder weather is here! Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately, we do our best to get outside everyday. 


A quick note about the lost and found: we've accumulated numerous items, so please encourage your child to check for any belongings they may have misplaced. It's also a good opportunity to remind everyone to label their items. This simple step can make a significant difference in ensuring lost items find their way back to their owners.


For those picking students up after school in the car line, please remember to filter to the upper parking lot so we can get as many cars as possible off of 27. Thank you for your cooperation!
