APPOINTMENTS DURING THE SCHOOL DAY

This is just a reminder for parents. We understand our school hours have increased the need to pick up students for appointments during the school day. We would appreciate a note or call to the office in the morning before the pickup. This helps us get your student to the office so you don't have to wait and eliminates disruptions to classrooms. Thank you!
