Friendly Reminder: When sending in notes, pick up, bus passes or what ever it may be please use first and last names and date, sign it on a full sheet of paper please. We are finding notes coming in with just first names and no date, no signatures, this is for the safety of the students, so they get where they are supposed to be after school. Thank-you
