1/11/2016 Dear Parents/Guardians,

Out of medical compliance parent letters and U of C medical consent forms were sent home last week. Any student that is not in medical compliance by February 1st will be excluded from school.

Reminder to parents who are dropping off and picking up students before and after school; Please be mindful of others and help to keep traffic moving by being courteous and not blocking traffic as you let your child/ren out of the car, or stopping to allow them to get in after school. Also, be aware that the school busses need to park so that drivers can let children off and after school they need to come into the building to pick them up after school. With all of us working together, we can keep traffic flowing smoothly.
