2. Mrs. Pretari's class will be selling pencils and erasable pens between first and second hour starting this week. If you'd like to make a purchase, please stop outside room 500 between classes. Prices range from $0.25 cents to $2.00.

 

 

REMINDERS:

  • Please review the school code of conduct and dress code with your child as the school year begins.  This can be found in the front of the agenda that each student was given this week.
  • Parent drop-off and pick-up is in the back of the school.  We did an awesome job of this in the first week! This allows for our buses to have access to the bus loop out front without any issues.  Thank you! 
  • If your child has any medical issues, please contact the main office and setup an appointment to go over the medical plan. 
  • Athletic schedules are located on the left side of the South home page.

2019-2020 School Calendar

The proposed amendment to Section 101(10) of the State School Aid Act was enacted effective October 1, 2019 and now allows school districts to count qualifying teacher professional development towards pupil instructional time.  Accordingly, we can now confirm that the alternate calendar that was previously shared is now approved and finalized.
