The new company, Strawbridge have a COVID case in their Plant and want to let you know that they are trying to provide a safe work environment and follow CDC guidelines. A section of the lab is quarantined and is slowing them down.
With that in mind, they have decided to put back Picture Re-Take Day to give Strawbridge more time to get picture packets delivered to us.
They are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your flexibility during this challenging year.
This event aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs.

The event will take place on Saturday October 24, 2020 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the parking lot of Walgreens at 440 N. Andover Rd Andover, Ks 67002. No needles or liquids.
We know getting traditional Box Tops to school this year might be challenging for families. Your safety is important to us, and we want to make sure your school can earn as much as possible during these unprecedented times. That's why we're opening up our fall submission process to ALL Box Tops supporters this year.
Follow the step-by-step instructions on our website to safely submit your clips so they count toward our school's fall check. You can also watch the simple how-to video below for further instructions.
All Box Tops submissions must be postmarked by November 2 to be included in your school's next check. Only unexpired clips will be accepted, and your Coordinator will be notified as soon as your Box Tops are processed. All submissions received by the deadline can take up to 3 weeks to process from that November 2 deadline.
Thank you for your patience and continued support!
Check out this quick video to see how to correctly submit your Box Tops and earn for your school this fall!
