A Note From Mr. DeFoor

Parents, we would like to thank you for the hard work and dedication that you are investing in your child's education each day. In order to continue to make our processes and daily routines more functional and safe for all of our students, I ask that you please be mindful of the following:

Morning Drop Off: When dropping students off in the morning, please do not stop in front of the cafeteria doors. In order to ensure that traffic is flowing quickly, we ask that you move to the furthest available cone and let your child off there. If you need to assist your child in getting out of the car, we ask that you pull up to the flag pole to do so.

Attendance: As we move into the cooler weather and holiday season, we want to remind our families that attendance is the first step to a successful academic experience. We ask that you help us reinforce being a life long learner, by showing and talking to your children about why going to school is important. We also ask that you do everything in your power to make sure that they are here regularly. For instance, when making appointments, please try to do so toward the end of the day or after school. Or, before going to bed at night, have backpacks ready and clothes picked out to lessen the demands of the morning routine so that your child can be here on time. Remember, time out of the classroom means that your child is missing out on valuable learning opportunities. Thank you for your cooperation.
