Final reminder that tomorrow from 2:30-5:00 and Friday from 8-12 we will have a final drop off for materials at East.  In addition there will be a pick up only for students who do not have Chromebooks.  Students and families who are also having Chromebook tech issues can also stop by East during these times.  All drop offs, pick ups and tech issues will be done via the Emmer St. Parking Entrance.  Pull up and we will assist you at your vehicle.  If dropping off, all Items must be returned in a clear plastic bag with your name labeled on it.  If you do not have a clear bag, have materials ready and we will give you a bag when you arrive.
