Picture Retakes - Oct. 26th!
Each year as part of our emergency procedures we practice what to do in the event of a hard lockdown. This year our drill will be in the afternoon on Friday, October 14th. The AHPD will be on-site to practice with us.
Just prior to the drill, we will announce over the intercom that this is a practice drill and the pre-recorded lockdown announcement will be played. At the end of the drill, an administrator or police officer will unlock each door to let the students and teachers know they did a great job and that the drill is complete.
Parent teacher conference sign-ups will open next Tuesday, Oct. 11th at 10:00 am. An email with directions and a link will be sent to your email address on file.
A test email will be sent on Monday, Oct. 10th at 10:00 am. If you do not receive the test email, please check your spam/junk folder to ensure your settings are correct.
