Please remember to Mask up!

Parents, please remember to send at least two masks with your learner each day. There are many times the kids drop their mask, or sneeze in their mask and they need a new/ fresh one. Thank you for your help with this.

Just a reminder...

Morning carpool does not begin until 7:25. Please do not drop off your learner before that time. Because learners are reporting directly to their learning spaces, this gives our lead learners time to finish their morning duties before welcoming friends at 7:25. Our Patriot Patrol program started last week, so you may have noticed learners coming in the building early, but they are preparing for their morning jobs and are supposed to be here early. We apologize for the confusion.
