Implementing closed, locked doors inside our school
For years, we've locked the outside doors to our schools when our students are present and asked everyone to follow procedures to get in. We are now extending the closed, locked door policy to inside our school, too.
Why? This change reflects a life saving lesson our law enforcement partners learned from the tragic events in recent years: no locked door has ever been breached by a school shooter.
We are working with our teachers and staff to begin implementation next week. Closing and locking doors does not mean that we are in lock down.We can still use hallways for intervention classes, individual sessions and teachers can still or go outside for class. Visitors can come to our classrooms and school.
Again, the reason for this change is simple safety for you and our students. Locking the doors has saved lives and prevented injuries.

We are here for you!

Message are checked frequently; If you need to call your student out, please leave a detailed message and we will get your needs taken care of.
Please be assured that we listen to ALL messages and update as they come in.
Student Release during the School Day
School is released for the day at 2:15pm. This is a great opportunity for appointments to be made for after school to maximize learning time for your child.
If you need to get your child released from school for an appointment, please call at least 30 minutes ahead of time so that we can assist in a timely manner. After you call your child out, we will send a slip to their classroom with a release time. Your child can then mean you outside at the arranged time, so you do not need to come into the building.
If you are notified that your child has an Unexcused Absence at any point during the day, please reach out to the teacher directly for clarification (if needed). Teachers will then notify the attendance clerk if any changes to attendance need to be made.
