  • Reminders

    If you have library books, classroom materials, or Spring Pictures that you did not return you can put them in the flower box outside the office. We check that a few times a day.  If you keep the Spring pictures, you must pay for them online. Loaned instruments will need to be returned soon too, our teachers will be in touch. The nurse will also be in touch regarding medications. Yearbooks will be distributed when we receive them. The Life Touch plant has decreased their employees for social distancing purposes, so things are taking longer for delivery. At this time our plan is for students to keep their Chrome Books for the summer. More info to follow on summer activities.
