The first day of the club will be Monday, September 23. 

The Activity Bus is available for students who have been in a supervised after-school activity.

After-school Library Guidelines:

Students need to be in the Library 10 minutes after the final bell at the latest.  Anyone arriving later will need a pass from a staff member.

Students need to be engaged in an activity (reading, homework, computer use) while in the Library after-school...students may not simply hang out and visit with friends!

Activity Bus passes will be handed out 5 minutes before busses are scheduled to leave.  Students who leave the Library before Activity Bus passes are handed out can not return later to receive a pass!
