Other Bits of Information

  • Lunch:  The hot lunch menu for March may be found here.  It is also never too late to apply for free/reduced lunch.  Information about this and the application may be found here.  Don’t forget, students can also get breakfast at school.

  • Lost and Found:  There are jackets, hats, gloves, sweatshirts, and water bottles in our lost and found.  Please make sure you look to see if your child has lost anything. Remind your child to do the same thing.  Come April, any winter items in the lost and found will be donated to Tap In.

  • Community Notice:  The Barrington Public Library has two notices for you.  You may find them here and here

  • Morning Drop Off:  Morning drop off continues to go smoothly each day.  To avoid such a large traffic jam some days on Sowams Rd., please make sure you are allowing your child to get out of the car where there is a sidewalk.  Your child does not need to be dropped off in front of the doors to the school. Traffic will move much more smoothly if this is followed.
