Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

We hope you had a wonderful winter break!   Please review the following updates and news.

If you drive your child to school please be aware and make the necessary plans for the traffic patterns and time it takes to get into and out of the parking lot.

All children must be dropped off by the 7:40 bell. If you arrive after the 7:40 bell you will need to park your car and walk your child to the front office and sign them in.
We know this is always a challenging part of the day and we thank you for your efforts to make it a smooth arrival each day.

If your child rides the school bus please be sure to be at the bus stop at least 5 mins before the scheduled pick up/ drop off times. If your child is a kindergartner please remember you will need to have an ID to get them off of the bus.

We look forward to getting back into the school routines and working with you and your children to continue this successful school year.
