Late season heat expected Monday into Tuesday.  High temperatures are forecast to climb into the 90s Monday and Tuesday, possibly reaching well into the 90s on Tuesday.  The combination of the unusually hot temperatures so late in the summer, along with moderate humidity levels could result in heat indices reaching or exceeding 100 degrees.  Please be safe and drink plenty of water.

Please remember…
Safety first in the parking lot.  Slow down and hang up the cellular phone. 
Students and parents coming into the facility should use the two crosswalks located on the west side of the parking lot.
As always, if you need anything, please give us a call.  You are always welcome to meet with your child’s teacher(s).
