It has become quite busy in the front office and hallway as parents wait for their children at the end of the school day. Because of safety reasons, we must keep these areas clear. Therefore, please wait for your child in the schoolyard and leave through the schoolyard and not the front office. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
Have a great week!
