Principal's Update for the week of 9/11/23

Week of September 11th

Good Evening Cougar Family, this is Carrington Calling with updates for the week of September the 11th.

Parents, if there is a change in your child’s transportation, this needs  to be communicated to our main office by 2:30. We are unable to ensure students will receive this information if it isn’t communicated to us before 2:30. If you need to pick your child up early, you must arrive by 2:45. Also, all students have the privilege of receiving free lunch and breakfast. If your child isn’t interested in school lunch, please be sure to pack a lunch as we don’t allow parents to drop off outside food.

We will hold our school curriculum night on Monday, September 18 @ 5:30.
