It is a district-wide policy that each person coming to the school during school hours be cleared as a volunteer prior to being admitted. This includes coming to school to have lunch with a child, attending a field trip, or for a teacher conference.
Parents, if it is necessary to change your student’s transportation during school, please fax (547-7985) a note prior to 2:15 pm (1:15 pm on Wednesdays) or you can send an email to [email protected] Last minute changes are discouraged as they often confuse the student.
