The Food drive is on! Donation Boxes are placed in classrooms and other areas. Staff has been provided with lists of The Most Needed IItems. Please help feed others this Thanksgiving – if we all just bring a few items or make a small cash donation, we can continue the Sound Schools’ long tradition of helping feed those less fortunate.

Please don’t delay- Time is short-Thanksgiving is THURSDAY!










If you are locked out of a building for any reason, please report to the main office so we can call ahead and facilitate your reentry. The McNeil building remains open at all times during school hours. Please do NOT knock on entry doors during class time. This is disruptive to everyone in the building. Also do not rely on calls or texts to fellow students. Your entry must be facilitated by an adult. Again…go to McNeil and get called in. Teachers, please do not send students on errands during class time. On that rare occurrence when you simply MUST do so, you MUST phone ahead to their destination to facilitate their entry.
