Thank you for reading our weekly Smore newsletter!

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.


-As per federal guidelines, we do not allow cupcakes or other freshly-baked goods to be sent/brought to a class. Only pre-packaged, single-serving snacks are allowed.

Did you receive your child's report card? They were sent home last week. Please contact your child's teacher for any issues with report cards.

Please think of the safety of the children (and the adults in carpool) and keep your cell phones put away during carpool times.
