Morning Drop-Off Reminder: In light of the current situation we are no longer able to offer a 7:30am bus room for students to be dropped off early. Parents are asked to drop students off no earlier than 8:00am as teacher supervision of students will not begin until that time. Parents will not be allowed in the building at drop off, limiting the amount of people in the building at one time. Thank you for your cooperation.
