Please label all jackets and sweaters with your child’s name. This will help us get them back to their owners!

To ensure we can contact you in case of emergency, please ensure your contact information is up to date in our front office AND with your child’s teacher. Only those people listed on the green emergency card in the front office will be permitted to pick up your student (with government-issued photo ID).
