Hey Galatia Parents please make sure you are never driving around a bus when they are parked for drop off or pick-up at either school. At the grade school do not use the road on the East side of the school where the buses park in the morning or close to the end of the day. Grade School Parents should always drop off your kids at the front south entrance of the grade school across from the community center. Also, for each of the school buildings please make sure you do not speed in the parking lots. Our students are very important to us and we want to make sure they are safe.
PTO field trip for 1st-3rd grades is tomorrow. Please have your child wear tennis shoes and bring a sack lunch.
