Parking Lot: Please drive slowly and with patience. Only let students out of the car when you are at the Sinnott gate entrance. Do Not let students out of the car to run through the parked cars as drivers can not anticipate these students darting out.

HOW IMPORTANT IS ATTENDANCE?


Awesome job at getting to school on time!


I know that the holidays bring travel. Please keep in mind how important it is for your children to be present at school. Please try to schedule travel during our days off.


School Funding is largely based on attendance! Every day that a student is at school = $55
