What to Bring: Students are asked NOT to bring backpacks, school supplies, or water bottles. Each child will receive a folder which they will bring to and from school every day. Students will be permitted to use drinking fountains in classrooms and will have access to drinking water during field trips. We recommend applying sunscreen to your student daily before school.
