Classroom Interruptions:

Please be aware the teachers have a lot of work to do with your students
and we ask for your help in reducing the number of interruptions to the
classrooms.  Our office staff has been instructed not to interrupt the
classroom during the school day unless there is a family emergency.  You
can help by discussing with your child alternate pick up plans for the days you
may be running later or when the weather is rainy or alternate plans in case
lunch/homework  are forgotten at home.  The office staff cannot
guarantee that these items will get to the students in time.  We greatly
appreciate your support in helping us create a successful learning environment
for our students.

Special note for TK and K:

All TK and K classes are supposed to drop their backpacks, etc…in
front of their teachers classroom and then go to the K playground.  Do not
hang out in the inner quad area prior to the 8:55 bell.
