Change in Bell Schedule
This is a reminder for all students.  Due to the teachers' job action, there will be changes to our class schedules on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays: lunch will be shortened by 15 minutes, school will end 15 minutes earlier, and busses will arrive 15 minutes earlier on those days. The earlier busses will start this week on WEDNESDAY April 30th and the shortened lunch breaks will start on THURSDAY May 1st.  A copy of the new bell schedule is posted outside of the office and on the Claremont website.
