September 14, 2023 

Good afternoon,

I hope you’re all doing well on this beautiful and less humid day. We started the day with a power outage not long after the start of our day, and then we had an ALICE drill. Through both of these situations, combined with what we all experienced last week, I continue to be very pleased with our students’ flexibility and patience. And yet still, I have fingers crossed for smoother sailing going forward in September!

We have school picture day coming up on Tuesday, 9/19/23. We are waiting for the hard copy order forms to come from our photographer. We are hopeful that they arrive before dismissal tomorrow, and we will send them home with students then. No family is obligated to purchase a picture package, though we do have all students get their picture taken so that we have updated photos in our information system, Power School, and they also are included in the Yearbook. If you would like to order pictures, you can order online using this link to Mark Lawrence Photographers, or students can bring the paper order form and check on picture day to give to the photographer. Students will be called to the photographers’ stations by team throughout the day. 

Starting Monday, we will be able to issue bus passes to students who wish to take a bus to a friend’s house to a pre-existing bus stop. We ask that parents and guardians contact us through our email address ([email protected]) or by phone if your child is to take a different bus. We will then issue a hard copy bus pass for that day. Please know that at times, we may be alerted to a full bus, causing us to not be able to issue a requested bus pass.

We have lots of clubs and activities starting up this week and next week. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for our Daily Announcements email. This listserv is the one we use when we postpone a game, practice, or other after school activities. I have been made aware that our announcements were coming at you through text, email, and phone calls recently. I’m sorry for those inundating messages - we’re back on track with how we communicate non-emergency related updates. Thanks for your patience with that hiccup.
