Thank you to all of the families that were able to take the time to visit with us at conferences.

A few updates and reminders regarding our dismissal at the end of the day. Classes end at 3:00pm, buses are now leaving the Junior High/High School bus loop at 3:06pm.

Unless students are supervised by an adult, they must exit the building by 3:05. Study Hall is available Monday through Thursday from 3:05 - 4:05. It is highly recommended that if anyone needs to wait for a ride, that they are waiting in study hall. Students that need to only wait 10-15 minutes may wait quietly in the entry way.

JH Annual Turkey Trot

Friday, November 15th is our annual Turkey Trot. It is a one mile course ran outside.
