*Lunch tables are on the patio by the playground. Unfortunately they are not covered so if it is raining, you will want to cancel and reschedule your day.

ATTENDANCE AND TARDIES
Tardies - We begin counting tardies at 8:01 a.m. We do, however, monitor the line. We take note of the last car in line at 8:01 and all cars after that, the students are counted tardy. Currently, we have a much shorter line between 7:45 - 7:55. If you consistently arrive about 7:55, try adjusting your morning schedule by about 10 minutes, you will not have to wait in line to drop off your child.
Thank you to the companies below who made donations to our Fall Festival Silent Auction.
*Girls with Pearls Photography
*Space Cadets Collectibles
*Lakeshore Learning Store
*Dave & Busters
*Irons Junior High
