The Red Cross is at an all time low, they need your blood and platelets. Please log in now and use the key word Harbins to sign up for a time. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Ms. Samples in the clinic. Thank You!

Clinic News

Have your children outgrown their clothes? Do you wish there was someone you could donate them to, that you know they will be used ? Please consider donating pants,shorts,leggings, underwear (girls &boys) and socks to your child's school clinic. Everyday we have kids that fall in mud puddles, spill milk on their clothes, and have bathroom accidents. They change their clothes here in the clinic, and most of the time, these clothes never get returned for someone else to use. So, this year when you are going thru clothes that your child has outgrown or just doesn't like the way it fits anymore, please consider donating then to the clinic. You may send them in a plastic bag, labeled clinic, or just ask your child to bring them by on their way to class in the morning off the bus. Thank you so much!!

Check out this video of this year's TOTY banquet. Congratulations, Mrs. Connor!

Transportation Changes

Please make sure that if your child has a transportation change for the day that you send in a note with the student that morning. If you have a meeting at the school at the end of the day and you have made arrangements with the teacher for the child to stay with them you would also need to send in a note.

Safety Reminder

Please remember that all visitors to the school must enter through the front doors and sign in. Each visitor should wear the yellow name tag at all times while on school grounds.

Teachers and staff are engaged with children from 7:45 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. Please help us preserve that time. We ask that if you need to speak with a staff member, you set up a time with that person. This way, we can ensure we are devoting our attention to the children in the building and making sure we meet your needs.
