Car Rider Line

Our car rider line will experience longer delays than usual for a while due to construction. Please do not wait until the last minute to drop off your child. In the afternoons we will also experience longer than usual delays due to construction and the limited amount of space for loading. Also, the car rider line will be dusty and/or muddy at times because not all of it is paved at the moment. **Update Parents of older students, you may be asked to loop back around if you're student is not in the car rider area. Please loop around so the younger students who are waiting can be loaded. We know this may be an inconvenience but it is necessary with our limited loading area. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Fall picture day will be September 26th. These pictures will be for the yearbook. We will not be doing sibling pictures at this setting. We will offer sibling pictures in the spring. More information is to come.

Please be aware that lice is ever present in school buildings. Please take the time to check your child’s hair once a week and take care of anything that is found.

To prevent infestation try some of these suggestions.

· Keep boys hair short clean cut

· Keep girls hair pulled up and spray with hair spray.

· Instruct your children to: not share hairbrushes, hats, or hug on friends.

· Lice cannot jump they only crawl. They are quick and spread quickly.
