With the change in weather, some have started using the hallways for walking. Times are after 3:30 p.m. Many times, the building is open until 7:30 p.m. due to activities held in the early evening. Just a reminder to call in if you plan to continue your walking schedule for another year and already have your walking pass from a prior year. If you are new to the program, contact this office for more information and to get a walking pass. Walkers can come on days when school is in session, but if there would be an early out, walking is canceled.
