Lost and Found Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope this email finds you well. We wanted to send a friendly reminder regarding water bottles, lunch boxes and jackets/outdoor attire left at school. Their items have been placed outside the school on the fence. You may pick up their items between 8:30 am-1:30 pm and 3:00-4:00 pm. If you are coming after carline, please park and walk up to the fence to look for your child's items. Typically, the items are kept in the cafeteria in our lost and found area in which they are encouraged to walk over in the morning to collect on their way to class. We kindly ask that you ensure your child's items are picked up no later than 2/27/24.

To help streamline the process, we kindly request that you label your child's water bottle and personal items with their name and grade level. This will assist us in returning any misplaced items to the rightful owners promptly.

Ensuring that their personal items are picked up helps us maintain a clean and organized environment for all students. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


Ms. Elizabeth Alers, Assistant Principal of Student Affairs
