Help & Support Needed

Please, help us minimize disruptions to classroom instruction by making sure your child(ren) are prepared for the day with all necessary classroom materials, lunches, projects, and special instructions. You are more than welcome to wait for your child’s lunch time to hand deliver any needed items for the day. Office staff will only handle emergencies and cannot deliver snacks or lunches to classrooms or call the classrooms to give directions for pick-ups. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
