A few notes about end-of-year business….
- The due date for library books was June 7th, and the fines for overdue books have been posted on student accounts. Updated lists have been posted in the commons, and will be updated again on Thursday, June 16th. Keep checking to make sure your student number hasn’t been added to the list. See the office if you have any questions.
- Yearbooks will be distributed during all lunches on Thursday, June 16th. Students with a hold on their account will not be able to pick up their book, but can see the office for information or to clear outstanding fines.
- The lost and found will be emptied and donated to charity after June 21st. Make sure you check for any items that may belong to you. Clothing and large items are under the stairs, in the commons. Small items like cell phones, keys, glasses, jewelry are in the office.
Last chance to buy a yearbook! The final sales window runs from June 7th until the books are SOLD OUT, and we do not expect to have any leftovers. If you want one, order yours today! Yearbooks will be handed out during lunch on Thursday, June 16th. You can purchase a book in advance, through the online payment portal. Or you can pay in the front office, before school and during lunches if you bring a credit card, a check, or cash (EXACT CHANGE PLEASE).
At the end of this school year we will collect your laptop so that we can update it with the latest software. Make sure you bring your laptop to school on June 16th and 17th. You will keep your bag, charger, and stylus over the summer and use them next year. Please remember to backup everything on your computer to your OneDrive or you will lose it over the summer.
