Labor Day: There will be no school on Monday, September 2. Enjoy your three- day weekend!
Dress Down Friday: As you are aware, Friday's have been designated as our school dress down day. This year, we have revamped the "dress down" code to be the following: Bottoms...Students may wear jean pants, jean skirts, jean skorts, jean shorts or jean capris only. There should be no holes in any of the bottoms worn. All skirts should be no higher than the knee, skorts or shorts need to be a reasonable length not to be shorter than 1-2 inches above the knee. Tops...School uniform t-shirts or polo style shirts only. Students do not have to Dress Down on Fridays, they can wear regular school clothes.
Calendar Change: As indicated on the calendar, September 23rd was listed as a day off due to our first Staff Professional Development Day. However, said date has been changed to September 9th. Please mark your calendars to reflect that we will NOT be having school on Monday, September 9th, but we WILL be having a regular school day on Monday, September 23rd. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
Lunch Options: On Wednesday a lunch order form was sent home with your child. If you would like to purchase one of the lunch options, please return the form and exact cash (no checks please) payment no later than Friday morning.
Pizza Lunch: When we are closed on a Monday, pizza lunch will shift to Tuesday. Next week pizza lunch will be on Tuesday. Please remember to send exact cash payment with lunch orders.
