The school librarians, IT office, cashier, Finance Department and Registrar will be present during the fair to facilitate the checkout process.

Because of the Checkout Fair, school buses will depart from the school at 13:00. Students who wish to order school lunch must do so by the end of the school day on Friday, June 7.
