  • Please communicate any and all carpool changes with your child’s homeroom teacher, especially if your child is a walker and/or goes to Camp Trinity. We can’t just take a child’s word that there will be changes. Thanks!
  • Please remember, over the counter medication (even cough drops) cannot be administered at school without a permission from a doctor AND parent.
