A big thank you to everyone who dropped off Chromebooks, hotspots & text and library books yesterday. We have heard from a number of people who couldn't make it during the day yesterday and we completely understand. To offer a weekend day & time, I will be at the school this Saturday, May 30th from 9 to Noon for anyone who still has items to drop-off. Since it will just be me, I will not be able to get personal student items for people who drop by. We are working on a plan to deliver those items in the near future. Thank you. Mr. Wherley #WeAreIC
