Parents/Guardians: We are in desperate need of your help. We need for you to have your students to school on time. The dropoff period is from 7:15-7:30 every day with the tardy bell ringing at 7:35. This is creating too many students in the office checking in causing them to be late to class and too crowded for COVID restrictions. We cannot hear the students when they say their names through the mask and the plexiglass shield. Please, please help us and your students by having them here on time. It is important if they are coming to school as traditional students. Please make school as normal for them as possible. We appreciate your help.
