Front Parking Lot During After School Pick Up:  A friendly reminder to parents/guardians that during after school pick up, parents are asked not to leave their vehicles unattended while parked in the drive through area of the parking lot.  If individuals parked in the parking lot need to exit their spot, they are not able to and this can be a problem if they are trying to get to appointments, etc.  Thank you for your support in this matter. 

Eating Utensils:  As a school, we hope to reduce the amount of plastics we are using. If your child will need utensils to eat their snack or lunch, please send them along with them as we will no longer be handing out plastic spoons or forks.

REMINDER - Wet Weather Preparedness:    A reminder to parents/guardians to have their children dressed appropriately to go outside as most days children will go outdoors for their breaks.  Rubber boots, waterproof jackets and rain pants are suggested especially if your child likes to play in/near the puddles!  A full change of clothes in their backpacks is also helpful should they need to change.
