    Student Lunches:  We are requesting that parents refrain from bringing take-out (restaurant/fast food) for student lunches.  Outside vendor food is not allowed in the cafeteria.  

    Carpool Reminders- Parents in the carpool line in the morning are not to switch lanes after dropping off students. We have had a few close calls, and these can all be avoided by this simple request.

    Student Check-Out Reminder- please refrain from checking your child out of school or requesting transportation changes after 2:30 p.m.  This is an extremely busy time for us in the main office, as we prepare for student dismissal.
