All schools are closed on Monday in observance of President's Day. School resumes at 9:05 am on Tuesday. Enjoy your additional day of family time!
Thank you for your partnership in education,

School Fees Past Due
IMPORTANT NOTE From the Clinic, Nurse Becky
Please send in extra clothing (pants, underwear, shirt) for your child to keep in their locker/cubby. I do not have all sizes of clothing at school to provide for your child if an accident happens that soils their clothing. We have had many children falling in the mud at recess lately! If they don’t have a change of clothes here, and I don’t have their size available to change into, I will have to call home to have something brought in, or they will have to remain in their soiled clothing the rest of the day. I am running low on all leggings/joggers, so please wash and send them back if your child has needed to borrow any. I will definitely take any donated joggers for boys, or leggings for girls from sizes 5-10. Thanks so much!
