Please try to avoid planning appointments or other time away from school for your child during MAP testing days and encourage a good night of sleep and a healthy breakfast.

Picking Students Up After School

To ensure the safety of all students, there is no pick up of students on the north side of Jefferson (Lussier side). Students must be picked up on the south side of the building (Memorial side). This only applies to the end of the day dismissal. If you are picking up your student for an appointment during the day, please use our new office entrance on the north side. Thank you for helping us. 

Recogida de estudiantes después de las clases

Por razones de seguridad, ya no se puede recoger a los estudiantes en la puerta del lado del norte de Jefferson (al lado del centro Lussier). La recogida de los estudiantes a partir de ahora va a ser en la puerta del lado de Memorial. Esta regla solo vale para el final del dia, despues de que terminen las clases. Si usted tiene que recoger su hijo/a durante el día por razones de cita o algo semejante, por favor utilice la nueva entrada al lado de la oficina. Muchas gracias por su cooperación
