Happy Friday CASB Parents, Guardians, and Students,

We have started off strong this first week of school. Please remember in the car line that high school is on the left and middle school is on the right (outside lane when you enter the parking lot). Everyone is to enter through the 2nd entrance onto Crescent Circle. There is no LEFT turn onto Crescent until after the police have left. Please go down to Blackthorn at the stop sign and turn around to make your turn a right turn toward the school. Once clubs start and Boys and Girls club starts next week, the lines will speed up. From Wednesday to Thursday, we lost 8 minutes.
