student’s report card. If you need an alternate payment schedule, please contact Mrs. Synder

NEW Confirmation will be conferred on Thursday, October 17th at 4PM. Due to the large number of
people arriving at 3:15, I need to make a change to the car line dismissal. On Thursday, car line
will be dismissed at 2:55 before the bus dismissal at Door B. Please use caution when exiting
the parking lot with the extra cars whose drivers may not be aware of our dismissal procedure.
