Lost & Found


Lost items are already starting to accumulate in both buildings. Last year the amount of items in the Lost & Found at the end of the year was overwhelming! We do not have the space to keep these items for long periods of time. This year, we will be donating/purging items that aren't labeled every Friday!


PLEASE label all items! We will make every effort to return lost items to their owners. If they are not labeled, they will be placed in the Lost & Found. On Friday afternoons, clothing and jackets will be donated to the Swap Shop. Water bottles, lunch boxes, and all other items will be thrown away. 


Mabel's Labels are a great way to help us return your children's lost items!


You are welcome to come inside to look in the Lost & Found anytime! 


Thank you for understanding!

Objetos perdidos y encontrados


Los objetos perdidos ya están empezando a acumularse en ambos edificios. ¡El año pasado la cantidad de artículos perdidos y encontrados al final del año fue abrumadora! No tenemos espacio para guardar estos artículos durante largos períodos de tiempo. ¡Este año, donaremos/eliminaremos artículos que no estén etiquetados todos los viernes!


¡POR FAVOR etiquete todos los artículos! Haremos todo lo posible para devolver los artículos perdidos a sus dueños. Si no están etiquetados, se colocarán en el área de objetos perdidos. Los viernes por la tarde se donará ropa y chaquetas a la Swap Shop. Se desecharán las botellas de agua, loncheras y todos los demás artículos.


¡Las etiquetas de Mabel son una excelente manera de ayudarnos a devolver los artículos perdidos de sus hijos!


¡Puedes entrar para buscar objetos perdidos y encontrados en cualquier momento!


¡Gracias por entender!
