Trimester 2 VLA Art Materials are Ready for Pick Up

If your student is in the VLA and is taking art as their elective for Trimester 2, art supplies are now available to be picked up. Please check and see who the teacher is as that determines which building you are picking up supplies from. If you have Mrs. Broz-England for art you will be picking up supplies from Lakeview (12445 Ault Road) and if you have Mrs. Knox you will be picking up from Ridgeview (130 Hill Road South). The offices are open from 7:00 am-3:15 pm on during the week (we will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving). Please just ring the bell at the main door and someone will bring the supplies out to you.

RV Sports Pressing Pause

The OCC Executive board voted to suspend all OCC related events until Friday December 18th. PLSD will follow the OCC vote and suspend all non league scrimmages & games as well until December 18th. We will be permitted to practice.

The league games that were postponed from 11/20-12/17 will be rescheduled, and the league is working on it currently. Stay tuned for information about non-league games
