Be sure not to drop your child off before 7:10. If for some reason they need to be dropped off early, they must pay $3 for early morning care. Early morning care is from 6:30-7:10. This includes if they miss the bus and you have to leave for work early. Please walk them to the library to sign them in.
All transportation notes must be handwritten /typed and brought in the morning of the change. Note should include your child’s first and last name and have your signature! Absence excuses need to be brought to school within 3 days after the absence. These must also include your child’s first and last name. Please do not transportation or absence excuses to me since the front office is in charge of these notes.
