Before and After School Clubs

We are looking to start Before and After school clubs the week of January 24. Club sponsors will be sending home permission slips with designated grade levels for each club sometime next week. All students participating in after school clubs must return a signed permission slip including notification of how the student will be transported home. Students must have a consistent mode of transportation home noted on their permission slip.


Thank you!
