Parents and Guardians: We hope you are having a wonderful summer break so far! Please help us by making sure your child did not bring a Chromebook or IPAD home; we are missing quite a few. If you do have one, you can drop it off here at the Elementary from 8-3 during the week, just ring the doorbell when you come through the first door. Thank you in advance for your help!
