Check out Why We are so HAPPY!

Requesting Time Off

Please remember to follow the proper procedure for requesting time off. If it is an unexpected absence please contact Paula via email, text, and/or call. Find a sub for your classes, be sure the sub has what they need for your day, and put your absence in HR Connect.

If it is a planned absence, please request it in HR Connect and notify Paula in advance. It is important we know when teachers are absent.

Hot Off the Press!

Viking Day was schedule for Friday, Nov. 4th, however, due to unforeseen issues it will be moved to spring. The day will still be a non-instructional day for students. This day will be planned by the administration and more details will be sent out very soon.
