Did you know the Transportation Department is around all summer?

Information will be available on the portal as of August 15 – log-in to find your transportation details for the coming school year then.

Also, you can download an app that will tell you when buses are delayed or cancelled for any reason.

Fun Fair is rapidly approaching on June 16 … we are looking for some donations for the garage sale and penny raffle – new toys, gift certificates, or anything that our school aged children would be excited to win are appropriate!

A list of activities will come home next Monday so you can plan with your child and send in a reasonable amount of spending money.
