Morning Drop Off Revised Times:
We ask that parents use the Kiss n’ Ride lane as opposed to walking your child in as it promotes social distancing. Drop off schedule is as follows:
A - M Drop off between 8:05 - 8:15
M - Z Drop off between 8:15 - 8:25
Lunch Time: 11:28 am - 12:13 pm
Afternoon Pick Up:
This is when we will have the most congestion on our lot, so it's important for parents to be on time for pick up and leave the lot as soon as possible. Do not come to your pick up area until it's your assigned time as it makes dismissal of the group ahead of you slower.

Memo to Families of Children with Specialized Health Care Needs - Dr. Janice Fitzgerald (September 8)
We are a peanut /
nut / fish / shellfish / green pea and latex aware
school. We have students and staff with life-threatening allergies to these items.
We are also scent-aware, as students and staff have severe sensitivities to perfumes, hairspray, colognes etc.
We are also sweet and sour sauce aware in K-Howlett, kiwi aware in K-Winsor, apricot aware in K-Kelly and chocolate aware in 2-Leawood .
We are no longer allowed to have recycling blitz's, but you can still donate your recyclables to the school. Families may drop off their recyclables to a Green Depot/Evergreen Recycling and have the refund credited back to our school account. Evergreen has made it quite easy to drop off your recyclables and donate. You just have to punch in the school phone number without the prefix (so just 3688351), indicate how many bags and then attach the stickers that come out to their bags. Please print a receipt as well. This program helps raise environmental awareness in our students and funds for our school.
