    how do parents gain access to the school after 4:30. often one of my children will leave something behind that they need that night or for the weekend. I have begged janitors in the past to let me in.

    • Hi Susan,

      Ms. Vogstad and I are usually still at school at that time and we’ve let many students with parent in when something has been left behind. We feel that if a student is willing to go back to school to retrieve something, they should be allowed to get it. If you need to get back into the school, stop in at the office. We will review this with our janitorial staff. Thanks for the great feedback.
