As part of the federal nutrition/health guidelines and the fact that many more students cope with food allergies, we are limited in the food treats we can distribute in school. Therefore, we ask that food items for birthdays and special occasions not be sent in, or if sent in, YOU MUST individually wrap the item and it will be sent home with students, not consumed in school. Thank you for your cooperation.
The weeks of April 9th & 16th, the students in grades 3-8 will be taking State Standardized tests. Please be sure students get a good night’s rest, have a hearty breakfast, and arrive ON TIME.
