This is week 4 of Friday Program. We learned last week that we need to make sure that ALL SKIS and BOARDS that are going to Mansfield for Friday Program at school BEFORE 10:00am. The truck and trailer will be loaded and leaving SMHS by 10:15am to take all the equipment to the mountain.
Some gentle reminders: please make sure names are on all pieces of equipment and if you come to school late, please let the office know if you have left any equipment outside. We don’t want anyone missing equipment.
