Dear Charger families,

Reminder! Early release at 1:45 Wednesday! Set your alarm. 

Elementary parent pick up: Thank you for having your signs! It is so helpful. As a reminder, please leave the sign in your windshield until you have your child in the car. This little thing is so helpful to our staff that are working the red lot. Thank you. 

Middle school families: Please be sure that your child leaves home in the morning following the outlined dress code that has been sent home. I will attach another copy for you to this email. Specifically this week, we have spoken to students regarding the appropriate length of shorts and having shoes with backs on them. We appreciate your support with this!
