A Message from Mrs. Pajerski

Thank you very much for your continued support this school year. As we approach the end of the school year, we wanted to remind everyone of a couple of safety and school policy related issues. School begins at 7:40 each day. Students are to be in their classroom at that time. Please be sure to drop your student(s) off in plenty of time to avoid being marked tardy. Should you be late dropping your student(s) off, it is required that you park your vehicle and walk your student(s) into the building. Students should NEVER be allowed to walk through the parking lot or cross the busy bus lane in the front of the school alone. Cars should NEVER be left unattended when not in a parking space.

Providing a safe school environment for all students is our top priority. Please assist us by following school and system safety policies designed to ensure student safety.

We appreciate your cooperation!
