Box Tops

Please turn in your Box Tops by Monday, February 29. This is the deadline for turning in the next round of Box Tops. Box Tops provide money to our school to purchase items that benefit all of our students.

Safe Driving and Parking

If you are stopped in the Circle Drive waiting for your child, you need to make sure you are not blocking the sidewalk. The students' vision needs to be clear so it is safe for crossing. Also, as a reminder, there is NO parking in the Circle Drive except for the designated spots.

Students who are Sick

Just a reminder that children who are sick should remain at home. Students should be fever and symptom free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This will help to keep any illnesses from spreading to others. Don't forget to call the office and report any absences!

Prepare for Cold Weather

Please make sure your children have winter coats, gloves, hats, and boots at school for the cold weather. Snow pants are also recommended as students love to play in the snow during lunch recess.
