8/3 - 8/7

Drop Off and Pick Up: 
While we do realize that parking is a challenge especially with the on-going construction, please understand that the parking areas in front of the cafeteria, including the grass/gravel parking area are reserved for faculty and staff.  We also need to keep the roadway directly in front of the cafeteria open for buses so while it is fine to drop off and/or pick up your child in the flag pole area, please do not park and/or leave your vehicle in that area while you walk your child to class.  We have numerous staff members inside and around the cafeteria in the mornings who can assist making sure your child gets safely to their correct classroom.  The Military Police have noted that several people were parking and fully blocking the sidewalk in front of the school (under posted no parking signs) as well as speeding through the parking lot where children were walking.  I have been informed that MPs will be ticketing those vehicles illegally parked and/or driving in an unsafe manner.  Thank you for your cooperation.  Agnes Leinau, Vice Principal

Update on Our Construction Project!

Here's an update on our project.  Less than 2 weeks before teachers return to school!  Will we be ready?  Of course we will!

By the way, teachers, you can begin to set up your classroom if you're in the new building.  Also, Building A is done, and F and H will be ready on Monday.  Custodians will be bringing back your furniture and boxes to your classrooms.  J and I are still not done.  Hopefully, they'll be ready by the middle of next week.
