Update on pick up /drop off end of year procedure:

We have arranged for pick up of materials left in classrooms, and to drop off items to the school, including class books, library books, and instruments.  It is important to practice social distancing and adhere to the drive through schedule.  The time for Decker's class is Thursday, May 21 at 12:00.  Please return class readers 'Kate's Book" and "Grace".

Cars will enter on Alexander, coming from St. Bernard Hwy at the side Cafeteria entrance.  

**Please have a sign with your child's name and homeroom teacher displayed from the passenger side door.  Someone will bring you your child's belongings.

If you need to make other arrangements for safe pick up, please call the office on Monday, May 25th.  

Please see the Arabi website or Facebook page for more information or updates.
