All letters are due to Mrs. Harmon by April 12th.  You may email ( or drop it off in the office.

Student Cell Phones and Smart Watches

As a reminder, students are permitted to have cell phones at school, however, they are to remain in their book bags at all times. Students should not have the cell phone on their person or out during the school day.  If students have a Smart watch or Gizmo, it is preferred they do not wear it to school. If they do wear it they are NOT to use the communication capabilities or use it to take pictures or video during the school day. If you need to communicate with your student during the school day regarding a change in transportation, please contact the teacher directly or the front office.
