Lunch Hour Recess Update

New starting next week, Monday, September 13th, a child that goes home for lunch does not need to leave for the entire lunch hour. You can pick your child up for their 30 minute lunch period and bring them back for lunch recess or vice versa. ALL STUDENTS MUST BE SIGNED IN AND OUT and ENTER/EXIT using THE OFFICE doors.

If your child eats lunch first, you can sign them out at 12:10 and sign them back in at 12:40 pm.

If your child has recess first, you can sign them out at 12:40 and sign them back in at 1:10 pm.

Please note that our PM kindergarten families are dropping off their children between 12:40 and 12:50, our parking lot will be busy. Please do not double park.
