Medicines in baggies and envelopes will not be accepted or dispensed.
The attendance office will not take phone calls for checkouts over the phone.

Bus transportation change notes must be turned in to the
front office in the mornings upon the student's arrival to school. 
For safety reasons, we cannot change a student from a bus

with ID to make the request. 
We will NOT accept any phone calls for these requests.
