May 25 - Last Day of School Information

We will continue our tradition of the last day of school, May 25, 2022, being a half day. On the last day of school, students will be dismissed at 12:20 pm with the intent that buses exit the parking lot at 12:25 pm. Parent pick-up will begin at 12:15 pm. A hard copy letter regarding the last day of school, including information about lunch, will come home with students on Monday, May 2, 2022.

Student Yearbooks

Yearbooks will be sent home on Monday, May 16, 2022, with all students that ordered one from our PTG. Yearbooks are to remain at home unless there is a specific signing day planned by your teacher. Teachers will let families know if a signing is going to take place.

Please discuss with your child the type of positive message they will include in a peer's yearbook. We are encouraging kind messages and asking students not to draw anything in another child's yearbook. Thank you for your support.

Medication Pick Up from the clinic

Please make arrangements to pick up your child’s medication by Monday, June 6. The office will be open between the hours of Monday -Thursday, 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. All medications must be picked up by a Parent or Guardian. Students are not permitted to take medication home on the bus except students with Self-Carry orders for epi-pens and asthma inhalers. We will dispose of any medication not picked up by June 6. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse 330-834-4652.
