Notice: The attendance computer in our front office has had issues this morning. If you got a call that your child is absent but is here, we are working to correct the problem. Your child will not be counted absent for the day. Please disregard the message.
Fall pictures for students, staff, and faculty will be Wednesday, October 6, during school hours. We will have a retake date in the future for anyone who is absent that day. Get those fancy Fall clothes and big smiles ready!
Book fair Oct 4-8 for students. Families can come shop Thursday, Oct 7, 3:45-5:00. There will be bus traffic until 3:45.
Tomorrow is the last day to turn in fundraiser money and orders. There was some confusion on the money submission. Please submit the money with the order forms.
Our shirt sale has been extended to Sept. 15 due to absences.
Good News Club and Cheer practice are cancelled today. Good News Club will resume next Tuesday. Students will need to use normal transportation home today. Please notify the office if changes are needed today.
Bus 43 is running late this morning, 9/3/21. Please be patient.
Students should have the final drafts of the Family Engagement Policy and School-Parent compact in their backpacks today or tomorrow. Those are your copies to keep. We still have several students who have not returned their internet and computer use forms signed. Please check backpacks. If this is not submitted, your child's access to computers and internet at school will be limited. It will also prevent your child from being able to take a computer home if quarantined or other situations arise that require us to send computers home.
Parents, please check your child's backpacks. Some students did not return their computer use forms yet, so we have sent those packets home again. They need to be signed and returned on Monday. These packets contain information about the cost of computer repair or replacement if your child damages or loses a computer. Without these on file, your child's access to computers for instruction and in the case of distance or virtual learning will be limited. Have a great and restful weekend!
