Just A Quick Reminder
If you received an Immunization letter for your student(s), remember ALL immunizations are due this week!
No Parking in Drop off/Pick-up Lanes
Parents are reminded that the designated student drop-off and pick-up for elementary students on the south side and secondary students on the north side atrium drive are “no parking”.  Do not leave your vehicle unattended. Both lanes also serve as fire lanes and cannot be blocked with parked vehicles.
Children exit vehicles on side of the vehicle next to the building.  Parents who walk children into the building need to park in a designed parking space and use the crosswalks.  Thanks for complying and keeping your child and all children safe.
Pee Wee Cheer Camp
Registration and information forms went home on 9/13 and are due by 9/27.  There are a few more forms available with Ms. Joni and Ms. Catrina. All registrations are due on 9/27 to allow us time to order t-shirts and materials for use at camp.  The camp is on October 12 from 8:30 a.m. - 12 noon in the old gym.  The children will perform what they learn at halftime of the Homecoming game that night.
