Have you moved?  Have you changed your telephone number?  Both of these are important contact information that the office should have.  If you have moved, the office must have 3 proofs of your new address to change your address so that you receive mail from the school.  If your telephone has changed - it must be changed in the computer system so that you receive all calls from our ConnectEd system.  We thank you for your cooperation.

Our 6, 7 & 8th Grades are planning the year-end trip.  Destination - Boston, Mass.  Letters have gone home requesting a deposit to help plan this trip.  There will be fund raisers to help offset the cost - so please watch for flyers with further information.  At this time the trip is planned for Wednesday, May 27. 

Please inform our School Nurse of any medication that your child/children may be taking.  If your child needs medication during the school day, we must have a signed form from your doctor detailing information.  Also, if your child has been sick, they must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  We thank you for your cooperation.
