ID Check

When you are coming into the school to pick up your child, please make sure you have your ID ready to be checked.

We have a new secretary who is not familiar with all the parents/guardians, so please be patient and understanding.

This is to ensure the safety of all our students.

Thank you,
Mrs. Russell
