Good Morning! Each grade level has their own sign-up sheet. Please block out the times that you wish to take breaks by "signing up" under your name with your email address. This will block the time out so parents cannot schedule at that time. (As a reminder, the district hours are from 11:30-7...) I tried starting at 7:30, but it added too many options for it to work. *If I made a mistake, please let me know ASAP. Here is a blurb to send to families: (please wait to send until Thursday so everyone has a chanc...
