Important Notes

-We are still having many tardies to school. Morning dropoff begins at 7:15, then traffic is much lighter between 7:20 and 7:35. Arrive before 7:35 to avoid both a long wait in the carpool line and tardies for your child/ren.

-Please park only in the parking lot, rather than in the carpool lanes, for early dismissals between 12:00 and 2:00 to avoid being blocked in by other parents arriving for carpool.

-Per federal guidelines, students may not bring (or be brought) outside food for lunch or breakfast.

-Please be considerate and reframe from sending food that contains nuts if your child's teacher sends notice that there is a child in the class that is allergic to nuts. This includes Nutella, which surprisingly, does contain hazelnuts.
