Packet Collection Information:

On Wednesday May 6th and Thursday May 7th we will be collecting student work packets that have been sent home.

The elementary schools are only collecting packet #2 which was the packet that was mailed home.  These packets can be submitted back to your school any time between 10:00 AM and 12:30 PM both days.  These times coordinate with the daily lunch pick up so you can drop off the work and pick up lunch.  Staff at each elementary school will have bins identified by grade level for students to drop them off. 

The M/HS will be collecting BOTH packets 1 and 2.  The M/HS will collect packets for students in grades 8, 10 and 12 on Wednesday, May 6th from 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM.  Grades 7, 9, and 11 packet collection will be Thursday, May 7th from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM.  Be sure your name is on the outside of the returning envelope and that your name and your teachers’ names are on each packet on the inside so it can be returned to the correct teacher.  There will be 6 bins clearly marked with the respective grade level.  These bins will be in the vestibule area of the main entrance.  Doors will be propped open - just drop your packet in the grade that relates to your grade level. 

If you have more than one student in different grade levels at the M/HS you can drop off all the packets on the same day regardless of which day you were assigned based on your child's grade.
