As a reminder, we will have an Early Release Day on Wednesday, December 21 and students will dismiss starting at 1:50pm. Winter Break begins on Thursday, December 22. Please be sure to communicate with your child’s teacher about any special classroom learning experiences prior to break!


Let’s make it a great week at 1000 Fayetteville Street!

School Updates


Morning Carpool Reminders

  • Please make sure your child is ready and all belongings are accessible when your vehicle is stopped.

  • The safest way for your child to exit the vehicle is on the passenger side. If you need assistance on the driver side, please wave down an adult to assist.

  • Your child is considered tardy and will have to be signed in upon arrival at the main office if you arrive after 9:20am. 


Headphones for your Wiz Kid

If your child uses their Chromebook on a daily basis, consider sending them to school with headphones! This helps students fully engage in online learning programs in the classroom.
