THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR TROOPS!

Thanks so much for all of the support you have given to me, Stephen and his platoon. A big “Thank-you” to our Mason students and their families for their generous donations and cards. The first box has been filled with gum, Nutri-Grain bars and hard candy. It has been packed and mailed. I know the soldiers will love it.

AFTER SCHOOL PICK-UP REMINDER!

PLEASE remind your children to come to the office if they cannot locate their ride home!


If students come back into the office by 3:45 p.m., we can make phone calls to parents immediately to resolve pick-up issues. Some of our students have been waiting outside until well after our offices close! This is a dangerous situation for children since we have no adult supervision outside after school, and once the office closes, no way for them to call home!


Parents who require consistent after school care need to register for Kids Club. Please realize we cannot offer school care in the office after hours.
