In an effort to increase student safety, our new front office "doorbell" has been installed. Please use the doorbell feature to communicate your identification and purpose for coming onto campus when prompted by office staff. Two way communication will be available once the button is pressed.Our "raptor" school safety software will continue to be utilized upon parent/visitor entrance. When coming onto campus, please have your state licensed identification (license) ready. This helps ensure student safety at all times.
October is Bullying Prevention Month
Throughout this month, our students will engage in activities and projects that promote kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Starting next week, students will begin to explore these definitions and consider these how these acts can prevent bullying. A school wide approach to these topics is critical, but we value and appreciate parent reinforcement at home with our messaging and language. Please support our messaging and values by visiting our resources here. We will be celebrating Unity Day on 10/19.
Coat Drive starts next week!
It always feels good to give back and help others. Let's show our Wildcat Pride by doing just that for our Coat Drive beginning Oct. 17-21.
Starting the week of 10/17, please bring in -
Gently used coats, sweatshirts, boots and sneakers of ALL sizes
Our donations will be going to help students in a neighboring district.
SAFETY- Emergency Drills
As the year moves forward, our students have started to practice emergency drills. Please help keep us safe by updating any emergency contact information in the office, including phone numbers and emails. This helps us update our "Q" system. If there were a true emergency and students needed to be released to guardians, they would only be released to a parent or emergency contact with identification. More emergency information available here.
