Hello parents, I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend. As a reminder we have a few adjustments at drop off and pick up that will start tomorrow. 1. Arrival will be for all families between 8am and 8:20a. All students (except daycare 3k and younger) will enter through the main entrance to help with traffic flow and movement to the proper class. (daycare will still enter/leave at the South end of the building as usual). 2. Dismissal for ALL car riders will be 3:20pm. Please adhere to pulling up as far as possible to fill in open spots in the pick up line. All older siblings will move to the South end of the building to meet up with younger siblings. All bus riders will stay with teachers and leave at 3:30p to board the bus. 3. Students will be sent home with an order form on Tuesday September 9th for Fontana neck buffs and face masks. We have a limited supply, but we will do our best to fulfill all requests. Thank you for your interest and all funds collected will go directly back toward student needs. We look forward to week 2 of the new school year. See you all tomorrow! #FlyIntoExcellence
