Items Collection Day This Friday

This Friday, May 15th we will be collecting all school items that were borrowed and need to be returned. Your child's teacher should have been in touch with each family regarding what is expected to be returned. All borrowed Chrome books must be returned. We will have a few staff members outside assisting, but we need to check items off as we receive them and put them into the correct classroom's box, so it may take a few minutes, so please be patient as we will move as quickly as possible. Since we must separate them by classroom, with Chrome books and library books in their own areas, if you package your items altogether this may slow the process down. If you can assist us by knowing which items belong to which student, that would be very helpful.

We will also have a Lost and Found area, so feel free to pull up closer to that and see if any of your child's missing items are in there. If you find anything that belongs to you, you're welcome to use a plastic bag to transport them home (we will have bags available).
