Morning traffic***Please Read***
Truman families, as you have noticed, our morning traffic routine has changed due to the road work that Sunset Hills is doing on Eddie and Park. Please take a look at the map below so that you know how we would like for traffic to flow. The front drive is specifically for overflow only. We ask that you do not block the drive at the green dot as this will back up all traffic at the intersection. If you see that the front drive (left side) is backed up to the road, please continue on the the primary drop off location. We realize that this traffic can be frustrating as I am sure many of you are on time constraints in the morning. The more that we plan ahead and work together the better it will be for everyone. This work is obviously out of our control at this time and we need to make the best of it. If you have family dropping off your student that does not get this email, please communicate this plan with them as well. Thank you for your understanding.

Students are welcome to wear costumes to school on Halloween, which will be Tuesday, Oct. 31. Costumes are optional, and to ensure that the school day proceeds without interruption, they must meet the following requirements:
Students must be able to wear the costume to school and throughout the school day (no changing clothes at school)
The costume must allow the student to participate in learning without distractions (ex: no props, inflatable costumes, large boxes, etc.)
