Here are a few notes for the close of the school year.
1. Students may wear gym uniforms Mon. June 1-Tues. June 2.
2. Students should ALL report to the Middle School for closing Mass on Weds. June 3rd. Arrival time is between 7:45 and 8:00 a.m. They should wear dress clothes for this Liturgy.
3. Dismissal on June 3rd will be at approximately 10:15 a.m. NO school districts are providing busing home on that day, so parents will need to make arrangements to have their child/children picked up on that day.
Thank you for a wonderful school year. Have a great summer!
