Attendance and Tardies:

It is important that students report to school on time each day. We are seeing an increased number of absences and tardies. Students that are chronically absent and tardy will not be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities.

Morning and Afternoon Carpool:

  • THANK YOU for your patience as we worked through our new dismissal portal, PikmyKid. Afternoon dismissal seems to be running much better now.
  • Please turn your music down when sitting in carpool. When your music is turned up loud, it makes it very difficult for students to hear their names being called.
  • Please do not speed while in the school's parking lot. Someone could get injured when speeding is a factor.
  • Please do not jump lanes while in the carpool line. Whichever lane you start in, you must remain in the same lane.
