10.  Since the beginning of basketball practice this year, we have had a continuous problem with the hall lights being left on and the outside gym door left unlocked or ajar after practice times. As we move forward with the season, all basketball players, siblings, parents etc. are asked to enter and exit the gym from the outside gym door and stay out of the school hall on practice days.In other words,the school hall will not be an available waiting area or a place for players to wait or siblings to play. The entrance door to the hall from the gym is to be opened only for evacuation or an emergency. If you witness an individual or team acting in a destructive manner with equipment, restrooms, light fixtures etc… in the gym, please report this immediately to Mrs. Hunt, bhunt@cosgriff.org. Thank you for protecting our aging,delicate school and using it in a respectful manner.

11.  The Christmas vacation begins on after school on Friday, December 19, and school resumes on Monday, January 5, 2015

Wishing you a relaxing and joyful Christmas and God bless throughout the new year.


Mrs. Hunt, Principal
