Front Office Checkout Change

At 1:45 p.m. each afternoon the office will be closed for checkouts.  Anyone wishing to check out after this time will need to wait until after we dismiss our students to buses and cars.  We will begin check outs again at 2:30 p.m. each afternoon.  We appreciate your support as we strive to make sure all of our students get home safely.

We’ve had lots of illnesses (students and teachers), and rest assured that we’re using this opportunity to learn the powers of washing our hands and sanitizing our classroom to prevent germs from spreading!

Thanks for all you do!

Mrs. Pennington & Ms. Schmidt
