May 25 Last Day of School

We will continue our tradition of the last day (May 25) of school being a half day. On the last day of school, students will be dismissed at 12:20 pm with the intent that buses exit the parking lot at 12:25 pm. Parent pick-up will begin at 12:15 pm. A hard copy letter regarding the last day of school, including information about lunch, came home with students on Monday (May 2).

Medication Pick Up

Please make arrangements to pick up your child’s medication by Monday, June 6. The office will be open between the hours of Monday -Thursday, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. All medications must be picked up by a Parent or Guardian. Students are not permitted to take medication home on the bus except students with Self-Carry orders for epi-pens and asthma inhalers. We will dispose of any medication not picked up by June 6. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse 330-834-4652.
