We need updated information for all families. Forms went home in back packs this week. Please sign and return these forms to your teachers this week. Thank you in advance.


Important Dismissal Reminders
Remember that school ends at 2:50. We ask everyone to be on time to meet their children and to pick up directly from your child’s classroom. All children must be signed out by their classroom teacher. This is for everyone’s safety, so thank you for your support in this effort.

While we understand that things come up and changes may happen from time to time, please do your best to give us 24 hour notice of any change to a regular schedule. Please be sure your teacher(s) are aware of any change.
