You will also be able to access the link from each school’s home page on the 14th.

Student Items Drive-Thru Pick Up Continues This Week

As we prepare for the end of the school year, we understand that some children may wish they had their personal items that they left at school when the buildings closed. Click here for the dates and times at your school. The items are being packed up by district staff and put in bags labeled with each child’s name. We ask that you drive up (no walkers, please) and do not get out of your cars. The items will be placed in your trunk or backseat.
