There has been an increase in speeding and cell phone use in the parking lot. Please keep car speed BELOW 5 miles per hour, and don’t use cell phones in our parking lot. IT CAN WAIT. Thank you for helping to keep everyone safe!
Our last Walk to School Day is this Wednesday, October 30th!
There will be prizes passed out to students as they get to school but please remind your student to fill out their SchoolPool trip log calendar for the month (CLICK HERE to download one) and return them to their teacher or the front desk by Friday November 8th. Tips to remember with the trip log calendar:
Students need to indicate if they walked, biked, rode the bus, or carpooled at least once during the challenge;
Student name, grade, school and teacher name are present on card;
The calendars are filled out by the student, not by parents or staff.
