Effective September 7, 2010, students will not be permitted to return to classrooms after 2:45 pm to retrieve
forgotten items such as homework, lunch boxes, book bags, etc. Teachers may leave the campus at 2:45 pm, therefore sending students
to rooms without someone present is a concern for our staff and for the security of our students. Please be advised that ASP
workers and custodians will no longer be able to unlock classrooms for parents or students. Until students become acclimated
to this procedure, we will provide daily reminders on the afternoon announcements.
