The itinerary, packing list and procedure for dropping off students on Thursday is on the school web site.  In order to avoid a traffic jam for the tour busses and school busses, parents will not be able to come to school when we board the busses at the end of the day for DC.  Please say your goodbyes in the morning.


Tipp Monroe Community Services is sponsoring a Run for the Mums T-Shirt Design Contest.  Entry forms are available in the literature rack outside of the office and also attached.

Field Day





Student Drop Off in the mornings – Parents, PLEASE do not drop your student off in the parking lot in the morning.  Please use the entire sidewalk and move forward to the drop-off sign.  More and more parents are dropping kids off in the parking lot and having them walk through traffic to the sidewalk.  Now that the time has changed, it is dark in the morning and it is not safe. It takes just a few minutes to move from Hyatt Street to drop a student off along the sidewalk.  Those few minutes are worth the wait to ensure the safety of your child.


As the weather gets warmer, the shorts are getting shorter.  As a reminder, shorts, skirts, etc. must be at least finger-tip length.  Many of the running shorts that students are wearing do not meet this requirement. Please help us by checking your student before they leave for school.


For safety purposes, please do not let anyone in as you are exiting the building even if you know them.  Please let the main office buzz them in so we know who is coming into our building.


All Students…...


BUS PASSES:  If you would like to use school transportation to attend a scheduled club activity, open gym, music lesson, conditioning, weight-lifting, etc. being held at the high school…bring a note (include dates & reason for the request) from your parent to the office no later than 7:30 am the morning you intend to be transported, to possibly obtain a bus pass.  We will do our best to accommodate your request


For safety purposes, please do not open the doors for anyone waiting outside even if you know them. Please let the main office buzz them in so we know who is coming into our building.


You are not permitted to return to your locker after any after-school activity. Please take everything that you will need to that activity with you.  Please make sure that transportation has been arranged prior to the activity and your ride is ready for you at the proper time.


The buses leave for the high school at 2:35 pm so please be diligent in getting to your bus in a timely manner. Buses do not wait for late students.
