(I am usually at school at 6:45 and try to

leave by 3:45 most days.  I can usually be reached after 6:00 at

 night. I would rather you call or text me if you have a

question or need to know something rather than wait until the

morning so I can clear up whatever it may be!)  (Update:  For 

the next 10 weeks, starting the week of Sept. 18th, I will be

leaving school immediately at dismissal on Tuesdays and 

Thursdays to go to Dover Elementary where I coach Girls on

the Run.)
