    Dear Parents or Guardians of Sixth Grade Camp Students:
      Our Sixth Graders will be leaving for camp on Monday, December 14.  Students are to report to their classroom no later than 8:30 a.m.  Suitcases, sleeping bags, duffel bags, etc. are to be left on the sidewalk by the drop off lane.  Please use masking tape and a marker to label your child’s full name on each item.  In case of rain, items should be taken to the multipurpose room.
      Karen Keys, our health clerk, will be available at the drop off lane to accept students’ medication to be sent to camp.  Please mark all medication with your child’s full name.
      Students will be coming back to school on Friday, December 18 around 11:30 a.m.  It is important that your child knows beforehand their pick up arrangements when they return from camp and call Project SAFE is they will not be attending.  Do not call the office regarding the status of arrivals or to forward messages unless it is an emergency.  If there is a significant delay or change in the arrival time, you will be notified.  Any items or medication not picked up or forgotten on Friday will remain until school reopens on January 4, 2016.
    Any student not attending camp will report to school at the regular time.
    Downloadable forms available.
