The library will close at 5:00 PM on Friday, May 24. Students who remain on campus after 5:00PM should wait for their parents in the softball area in clear view of the school security. The Franklin Avenue gate will also close at 5:00 PM so all student pickups will be from the Western Avenue gate after 5:00 PM. Thank you.
