Please only send in a spill proof water bottle with your child. If they turn it upside down and it drips, it isn't spill proof. Remember, they aren't as strong as you so it may not drip at home but may here after they refill it. We have had more than our share of spills this year. Thank you!

Winter uniforms reminders:

  • Girls wear gray or maroon knee socks or tights. White is out.
  • White or gray crew socks (over the ankle) are worn with pants. Ankle socks are out.
  • PE sweatshirt and sweatpants must be worn to school, not just put in the backpack ; PE shorts and t-shirt may be worn underneath.

  • All gray pants/shorts must have a label on the back side reading "Arthurs" or "Flynn O'Hara."
  • Belts need to be worn with pants/shorts, boy or girl.
