FOIP Release Form - The Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act Release form now needs to be completed annually by parents/guardians.  Please remember to complete the form, which was included in the package that was distributed the first day of school, & return it to school this week if possible.

Change in Bussing - Student safety is our priority. If you would like your child/children to go somewhere other than his/her original bus drop off point, you must notify the school, either by calling the school office, sending a note to your child's teacher & the school office, or by coming to the school office & completing a bus change note.  If the school does not have a parent/guardian's consent, we will not send a child to another drop off point.  Also, if you pick your child up from school during the day, please stop by the office to complete a bus note.
