Please remember to do the Daily Health Check with your child and keep them home if your child is sick. After school pick-ups – Please make sure you have pre-arranged a meeting spot for after school pick-ups.  If your child does not find their pick-up person, it is our policy that the students come back into the building and check in at the office. The Cold Lunch Program is available to everyone. *If you need financial assistance in order for your child/children to participate in this program, please contact the school regarding our payment options.  You must register for the program so that we know how many meals to order each week.
COBBS bread is available on Monday mornings outside the gym doors. Attendance at school is important to us.  Please try to have your children at school on time and ready for school.  If your child is late, please bring them to the front door to check in as all outside doors are locked.  If your child is going to be away, please email their teacher. When you are dropping off and picking up your child, please stay off the paved areas if at all possible.  This will allow ample space for teachers to pick up their students. Please wear masks when on the school ground.
