Christmas Break: Please note that the student return date from Christmas break is Wednesday, January 4.  The Ben Lippen online calendar reflects the correct date of January 4 but the printable version that you may have from the beginning of the year does not reflect this date change.

  • Tuesday, January 3, is when faculty/staff return.
  • Wednesday, January 4, is when all students return – full day of school.

Lost and Found:  Due to the continued changing weather, we have collected quite a few jackets and sweatshirts. The lost and found items will be located on a table in the hallway in front of the school office. Any items not picked up by December 16 will be donated to the clothes closet. Just a friendly reminder to label your child’s clothing. If there is a name in their jacket, we do our best to get it back to the student when found.  Thank you!
