Library Relocation

The Elementary Library will be moving temporarily to the rectangular portion of the Elementary School Cafeteria. Students will be able to check out double the amount of books for the next week and library classes will be held in students classrooms during this transition.The library will be operating on a smaller scale for the remainder of the school year. We thank you for your patience and understanding while our brand new library is being built.

New Dismissal Procedures

Starting Sunday Lower Elementary Students will be dismissed from the round portion of the elementary cafeteria. Please look for your child's classroom teacher and stand clear of the door ways so that students will be able to enter safely and quickly. Upper Elementary students will be dismissed outside of the cafeteria in the tree court yard. We ask that parents continue to walk around the outside of the buildings to get to the cafeteria.
