Toys and Equipment from Home for Recess

Families--We appreciate your help with making sure your child is not bringing personal toys, cards, equipment, etc., to school for the playground. With the help of PTO, we are working through identifying what equipment needs to be replaced for the playground (basketball, footballs, etc.).

If your child is having a special share day in his/her classroom, encourage them to keep that item in their backpack in the classroom.

Device Protection Insurance

Families--We appreciate you reviewing this coverage offer for the computer devices that are assigned to each student.
