-  Starting with this Friday’s dance, in order to alleviate traffic concerns and ensure the safest experience for all families during pickup, we have a new plan for after dance dismissal. If you are the parent/guardian of a 6th grader, you will continue to pick up your daughter or son in front of the school at 10pm as always. If you are the parent/guardian of a 7th or 8th grader we will dismiss your son or daughter through the Bemis Street door. Please pick them up on Bemis Street. Dance drop off will be the same, in front of the school.
