Forgotten Items

It is inevitable that, at some time, your student will forget something, a lunch, water bottle, etc. You can bring the item up to the school where we have drop off shelves in the vestibule. When you get here, you will find stickers that you can fill out with your student's name and teacher. We have two Mrs. Henry's so please add the grade level for those two teachers.

Deliveries are made to the classroom at 10:00, so please have the item here by that time.

CNS Reminder!!

CNS wants to remind families that we are charging for meals this year. If a students' lunch account is not funded or underfunded, and the student reaches a negative balance of $15, the district provides a low-cost meal to the student until funds are replenished. If this happens, our CNS staff has a conversation alerting students they have a low or negative balance and they send an email to families alerting them as well.
