A Note From Mrs. Looman

Welcome back and thank you to all who came out to our "back to school" events over the course of the last week. It's great to have the building humming with people again and seeing our staff and students excited about the year ahead. We look forward to all that this year has to offer.

Staffing update: I'm pleased to announce that Ms. Kotel will be joining us next week as our PE teacher. PE classes will begin on Wednesday. I'm also happy to announce that Mr. Beausoleil will begin some time next week as our full-time custodian. Mr. Clark will be here in the mornings, and Mr. Beausoleil will be here in the afternoon/evenings. Welcome!

Forms: Just a friendly reminder that registration forms, annual medical forms, and free/reduced lunch applications all came home in hard copy form this week. If you have not yet done so, please complete those and return them to school as soon as possible. Additionally, the electronic forms linked in the buttons below must be completed by Friday, September 9th. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need additional forms.

Below, you will find the link for this year's Family/Student Handbook. There were some changes to the field trip procedures, as well as some of the items in the common chapters so please be sure to take some time to read through it.

Finally, a reminder that there is no school on Monday, in observance of Labor Day.
