Special Alert -- Dismissal Car Tags
These car tags were packed and ready to go prior to the district's announcement to stay remote until January. PLEASE KEEP THESE TAGS IN A SAFE PLACE, as this will help us run a safe and smooth dismissal with increased traffic on campus.
Even if you are planning on staying remote through the end of the school year, we did include a car tag just in case things change.
