Notes from Mrs. Jackson
It was great getting back after winter vacation even for such a short week.  One quick reminder…when you leave the building, please don’t hold the door open for other visitors to enter. For safety reasons, it is important for all visitors to ring the office and get checked in when visiting.  Thanks for helping us ensure a safe environment for our students and staff.  Enjoy the weekend and stay warm.
