Checking Students Out

Our campus, including offices, will be closed tomorrow during the Awards Ceremony.  If you need to check your child out of school, you will need to do so before 9:30.  Students will not be permitted to leave from 9:30 until the conclusion of the ceremony.

All lockers have been cleaned out so it is not necessary for students to bring anything with them to school tomorrow.

All fines (library, Chromebook, lunch, choir) must be paid no later than tomorrow.

I have truly enjoyed working your child this year.  I pray you all have a safe and wonderful summer!
