Hello again Pat Ham, Beginning today, students will be bringing their Chromebooks home for the weekend. The district has purchased an additional charger for each student so that they may leave it at home. Please have your student bring their Chromebooks back to school on Monday. If you did not arrange for a Chromebook when school began because you have one at home, students will not be bringing one home. If you have any question don't hesitate to call. Thank you, Ms. Robinson
Thank your for a great first day! If you pick up your child in a car at the end of the day could you please write your child's name on a large piece of paper and hold it up to the window. We want to improve our process for pick up and keep your children safe. Have a great night.
