Reminder:  Doors to Mease and Taft Elementary Schools open at 7:45 a.m.  If your child is catching a bus to another school we recommend arriving no earlier than 7:40.  As the weather turns colder these children are having to wait too long outdoors. We have had students at both buildings as early as 7:15; there is no supervision at this time.  Please refrain from dropping your child off before 7:40. Thank you.

Lost and Found - We have a big pile of lost and found items already.  Please have your child check the lost and found if they are missing anything. 

Box Tops for Education Program Change - We have collected Box Tops for several years at our elementary schools.  We earn 10 cents for every Box Top we receive. We will still continue to collect the clipped Box Tops until it is fazed out.  However, there is a Box Top app that you scan your receipt to get our school the credit for the Box Tops on that particular shopping trip.  No more clipping!
