*Parents please do not pick up your students in the Somerset neighborhood at the
end of the day*
We need your help at the intersection of Crockett Road and Volunteer Parkway. Apparently there
have been several close calls while students are crossing the road in the crosswalk. We are
concerned for the safety of all our students so please be aware when proceeding through this
intersection that children are present. Thank you for your help.
Early Dismissal Process
Parents, If your child is going to be dismissed early, please have them bring a note to
the office in the morning so that they can get a blue slip. It is the student’s
responsibility to leave class at the time on their blue slip. Schedules change and
students are not always in the class indicated on the computer. We understand that
sometimes appointments are made after the student has come to school. In that
case, please call the school in advance of you coming to the school. Students are not
permitted to leave their class to wait for you, without a blue slip. Thanks for your
cooperation!

be collecting single-serve items for the Fuel Bag Program at GraceWorks. Credit will
only be given for these single-serve items. Examples are available on the posters,
and sample items are on display outside the office. As well as collecting these single-
serve items, money is accepted. $1 = 3 items.

and Karen Mauldin will be presenting an IB Program overview on Thursday,
November 6, at 6:30 pm in the FHS library*
