Helpful Tips for Safe Drop Off and Pick Up

  • If your child has an appointment, arrive no later than 2pm with your green car tag to pick them up.
  • Early Release Day pick up begins at 11:40AM (in order to sign out for appointments, be here by 11:00am)
  • When signing children out early, pull into the staff/visitor parking and walk up to the computer with your green car tag.
  • We do not allow any parents to walk students down in the morning or afternoon. PreK parents need to bring K-5 children through the line and then park at the top to walk down to PreK. This is for the safety of all children.

Report Cards and assessment data will be available no later than November 8th! If you have a parent conference scheduled you will get them at that time. You will also get information with student state and district benchmark information.

Parent Teacher Conferences

As we draw near to the end of the 1st Nine Weeks, teachers will be sending out information to schedule Parent Teacher conferences. This time is so important so that we can be a team to help make every day of school great for your child! We look forward to speaking with each of you!
