A reminder to parents from the office staff: In the event an item was forgotten at home and you bring the item(s) to school for your child, please drop off all items at DOOR 8 (back by the baseball fields), not at DOOR 1. This is a change practice that offers families easier access to park, drop item off quickly and then safely move on their way. We appreciate your partnership, thank you.
