Thank you for reading our weekly Smore newsletter!

Schools will be closed on Monday, January 16 in remembrance of Martin Luther King, Jr and his good works. ❤

Important Notes

-Please be on time to school. We are having way too many tardies every morning. Dropoff begins at 7:15, then traffic is much lighter between 7:20 and 7:35. The tardy bell rings at 7:45.


-Please be considerate and refrain from sending food that contains nuts if your child's teacher sends notice that there is a child in the class that is allergic to nuts. This includes Nutella.

Please put your phones away during carpool! So far this year we've had one car run into a fence, one that ended up on the curb, and one of our teachers was naearly hit by a vehicle. Please think of the children and their safety.
