IMPORTANT - INTRUDER TRAINING INFORMATION
Officer Fields from the CR Police Department will be here talking to staff regarding intruder training during our in-service time. As we have engaged in conversations with Officer Fields, he has strongly suggested that we also hold a parent session where he can share similar information, as well as answer any questions that you have.
Please mark your calendars for 515PM on Thursday, August 22nd.
This is the same night as Meet Your Teacher and allows you to stay after this event to attend Officer Fields' presentation. The presentation will run 60-90 minutes depending on the number of questions. Would love for all of you to join! Please RSVP below to help us get a count and have the right space!
