First Safety Drills are a Success
On September 11th, all classes participated in a bus evacuation drill in our front parking lot. Bus drivers provided a lesson on bus safety to all students.
On September 14th, our building engaged in a planned fire drill. Staff and students were informed of the drill ahead of time, and teachers discussed procedures with the class. Our students were well-behaved, and the drill was executed in an orderly fashion. The fire department was not present at this drill. Very soon, the fire chief will conduct a drill at our school.

Library Soft Seating Arrives
- Please pack your child the necessary utensils, napkins, straws, etc. The ones we have in the lunchroom are for students who purchase a meal from our food service.
- Please try to pack items that your child can eat independently. It's a good idea to practice opening containers and putting straws in juice packets at home, so your child knows what to do.
- Please do NOT pack glass containers ilke Mason jars and Pyrex. Broken glass would create a safety issue for our students.
