Campus Dismissal

Please make sure you have your child's dismissal placard placed on the PASSENGER'S SIDE dashboard of your vehicle. This will ensure efficiency during dismissal! If you do not have a placard, please email your child's homeroom teacher. A placard will be printed and sent home with your child(ren).

If you have a BULLDOG placard, please place it in the DRIVER'S SIDE of your vehicle,

so that it is visible for our staff when you are picking your AFAR student up from testing on campus.

Curbside Meal Pickup

Children 18 years of age and younger are eligible for breakfast and lunch meals, at no charge, until the end of the current school year. 5 days of FREE food, for breakfast and lunch, can be picked up 'curbside' from the west side of our building! Members of our campus SLA Management team distribute meals to families every Thursday, between 6:30am and 7:30am and at 4pm until 5pm. During the month of May, meals will be distributed to families on May 6, 13, 20 and 27. Simply let the SLA staff know how many children you are picking up meals for.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather,
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
