NOTES ABOUT DAILY CHANGES…….Parents we cannot STRESS enough the importance of sending notes with your children in regards to CHANGES at the END of the day.  It may seem like it is a hassle to send a note in the am, but already in the first two weeks of school we have been needing to INTERRUPT classes frequently  with changes for students at the end of the day.  We DO REALIZE there are some instances where you are not aware of changes due to unexpected appts and such, and will be happy to let the teachers/students know for these.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
