Meetings with Teachers

Please be sure to sign in upon arriving at the school. Parents should be dropping off students either in the breezeway or lunchroom in the morning. Please do not take your child to the classroom. The teachers have a process in the morning and it is essential that they have the ability to start that as soon as possible. If there is a concern, please contact Mrs. Stager.

Also, parents should be waiting in the breezeway at the end of the school day. Please do not go the classroom.

If you would like to speak to a teacher, please call the office and make an appointment. Please do not show up at recess or during a teacher's prep to talk unless you have made an appointment.

For the safety of all of our children, we need to know who is in the building and where they are at all times.

Thank you so much for your cooperation with this. We really appreciate all of you and thank you so much for all you do for us!

- Mrs. Stager

Lunch Help

We are DESPERATE for lunch help.

The office will close on days when we have no help, which means we cannot answer phones, release students early, reply to email inquiries, deliver lunches or answer the doorbell.

PLEASE volunteer for this hour and a half (2 service hours or $7.50/lunch period toward your tuition) when you can.
