A note from Mr. DeFoor

Parents, if your child rides the daycare van and is absent from school, please be sure to let the daycare know so that they are not looking for your child upon arrival to the school. This will allow our staff to load vans more effectively.


When dropping students off in the morning, please be sure to utilize the cone method that is used in the afternoon. This means that you should pull up to the furthest available cone and that your child should walk down the sidewalk to the cafeteria. Please do not pass other cars in the line as this creates a safety concern for our families walking across the sidewalk.


Additionally, as our after school clubs begin over the course of the next few weeks, we want to remind parents that siblings of students who are in involved in clubs must be picked up in the afternoons according to the typical dismissal procedures. We are not able to provide additional supervision of students during this time.


Thank you for working with us to make sure that all of our students and families are safe. Have a great weekend.
