Thank you for reading our weekly Smore newsletter!

Important Notes

-Please be on time to school. We are having way too many tardies every morning. Dropoff begins at 7:15, then traffic is much lighter between 7:20 and 7:35. The tardy bell rings at 7:45.

-As per federal guidelines, we do not allow cupcakes or other freshly-baked goods to be sent/brought to a class. Only pre-packaged, single-serving snacks are allowed.

Please think of the safety of the children (and the adults in carpool) and keep your cell phones put away during carpool times.

Is your child missing a jacket, lunch kit, eye glasses, etc? Well they may be in the Lost and Found bin. We cleared out the items from 1st semester... these are from Jan 5 to the present. Please ask your child to visit the bin in the front office if they have lost something.
