Good morning, today is Friday, August 23rd, and it is an A Day for everyone!

Students, please make sure to bring your lunch money to the cafeteria in the morning prior to first hour or during passing periods.

Please note that we have 60-minute early dismissal this week, which means that students will dismiss at 1:30 p.m.

Drop off and Pick Up Procedures: Students who are car riders will need to be dropped off on the Monroe Street side of the building. Dismissal- parents may not park on Monroe Street (behind the building), 12th Street (east of the building), nor on Capitol Street (in front of the building). All other side streets, as well as the church parking lot on the corner of 12th Street & Monroe Street, may be used for student pick up.

*Parking for visitors during the school day is permitted on the east side of 12th Street and the north side of Monroe Street.
