Student Items Drive-Thru Pick Up Information - Week of May 11

As we prepare for the end of the school year, we understand that some children may wish they had their personal items that they left at school when the buildings closed. We have arranged for personal items to be picked up at each school starting May 11. Click here for the dates and times at your school. The items are being packed up by district staff and put in bags labeled with each child’s name. We ask that you drive up (no walkers, please) and do not get out of your cars. The items will be placed in your trunk or backseat.

More information will be coming related to wrapping up the end of the school year. The last day of Remote Learning is Thursday, June 4.
