Early Release Day
Friday, March 4

Friday, March 4 will mark the end of the second trimester for pre-k and K-5, and all students, pre-k through 12th grade, will be released at 12:15. K-12 will not have a lunch time before dismissal, so parents might want to pack some extra snacks for their children that day. Pre-k parents are asked to send a lunch with their children as the students will eat lunch before dismissal. Driver Provider busses will leave campus at 12:25 and will then follow their usual afternoon routes. To determine bus stop times, subtract 3 hours and ten minutes from the usual times.

They will be selling them from 3:20-3:40 pm all week.

Congratulations, Mary and Kai!
