The severity of last night's storms were very unexpected and we appreciate your patience as we work to answer all your questions.  Summer school is over and there is no need to make up the missed day today.  If your student needs to get anything they left at school, they can come up on Monday or Tuesday and do so between 8:00a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Buildings will be closed after 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 30.  

If you have student medication that needs to be picked up, we would ask that you call your child's school health room on Monday or Tuesday and leave a message to save the medication.  Medication for those who leave a message will be saved and can be picked up in August.  Families who do not leave a message will have their student medication destroyed.  If you need your student medication for the summer, please leave a message for the health room or contact the main office on Monday morning to make arrangements.
