Pick-up of Student Supplies, All Grades

We are excited for students to pick-up more of their district issued school supplies (science kits, books for independent reading, etc.) needed for remote learning. These items are individually labeled for each student. Please plan on picking up your child’s supplies on Thursday, 9/24 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM. These items will be on tables outside the front of the school. Tables are labeled by grade and classroom teacher. Students in the Distance Learning Academy should pick-up their supplies at Tarkington as well.

The tables are spread far apart enough to ensure Social Distancing; however, we ask that parents wear their masks and adhere to distance guidelines while picking up items.

Although families can choose any pick-up time that works for them, below are suggested times listed by student last names. Doing this may lessen congestion. Any family not able to pick-up items during this window may do so any business day after 9/24 by going to the school office between 8:30 and 4:00.
