Feel free to prepare your child with sunscreen and send a hat as the students will be assembled on the yard, at emergency circle. Parents, please note, the school will be locked down and no students will be admitted or released during the drill.

SWPBIS- Cyber Safety-Social Media Monitoring
Parents, it’s been brought to my attention that some of our 5th graders have access to and have been active on apps like Tik Tok. Please be reminded that the legal age for social media apps, like that, is 13. Because cyber activity, especially behavior crossing the lines of bullying, is something that can involve law enforcement, I want to encourage parents, especially 5th grade parents to please monitor your child’s device time.
That’s it for this week’s news from school. Have a tigerrific evening.
