Just a Reminder…
If your student will miss two or more days after Spring Break please remember to contact the main office for a pre-arranged absence form. Absences of two or more days are unexcused if not pre-arranged. Absences during final exams must be approved through the Principal’s Office.

From the Parent Council
Please help support our students during final exams next week (March 29th and 30th) by donating snacks and/or money toward snacks. We also need smiling faces to pass them out! Each year the Parent Council organizes the distribution of healthy snacks, smiles, and encouragement to our students during finals – it’s a great way to keep their bodies and minds focused.  Signing up is easy!  www.SignUpGenius.com/go/60B0D4CADAA22A7FC1-isitspring
