Student Item Pick-Up & Chromebook Return Date

posted May 14, 2020, 9:23 AM by Diana Blevins

Hi Manzanita families. 

 May 18 will be your day to pick up any items your student left in class.  If you checked out a Chromebook, you will also be returning it during this time.

Teachers have collected all student items and put the items in individual bags, labeling the bag with the student's name.  On May 18, you will drive up to the front of the cafeteria.  An employee will bring your child's items to your car.

If you have a Chromebook to return, you will drive to the regular student drop-off/pick-up area.  An employee will need to check the Chromebook so please make sure it is charged.  There will be a form to fill out so please bring a pen.

Please follow the schedule below:
