  • As we come to the close of our school year, we have made arrangements for all students to pick up materials left in classrooms/awards/mementos, etc. and to drop off items owed to the school such as library books, instruments and the novels that were sent home when we left so quickly in March. It is important that we follow the schedule below and continue to practice Social Distancing guidelines. 


    Our procedure will hopefully be a very efficient DRIVE-THRU process. Cars will enter on Alexander St., coming from St. Bernard Hwy. at the side Cafeteria entrance. Please have a sign with your child's name and homeroom teacher displayed outside the passenger side door. At the cafeteria doors, someone will bring a bag with your child's belongings. 

    Our class's time will be on Thursday, May 21st at 11 AM.
