Core Survey for Parents/Guardians!

Please take a look to see if you received one or more e-mails from PanoramaEducation regarding our school's "Core Survey". The more parents/guardians we have that fill out the survey, the more accurate our survey results will be!

Thank you to the 17% of parents/guardians that already took the survey! Woohoo!



It's NOT too late.. and we need you!

Gate Update!

As you may have noticed, the auditorium gates have been completely installed and the front gate is soon to follow.

This is part of a district-wide initiative to have enclosed schools with one point of entry during school hours.

There will still be multiple gates opened before and after school for entry and dismissal. However, from 9:00 am to 3:05 pm, all visitors will have to enter through the main entrance doors.

In the coming weeks, we will also be activating the EVSS (Electronic Visitor Screening System) which will require all visitors to identify themselves at the front door before being granted entry.

Prisk has not activated the EVSS system as of yet and we will continue to provide updates until that time. If you want to best prepare for the change, you can simply start using the front entrance when coming onto campus.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we navigate this process; it is a change for all of us!

P.S. Please also be reminded that in the morning, our playground opens at 8:30am and therefore, gates are locked until that time. In the afternoon, we begin dismissal at 3:05 pm and therefore, the gates remain locked until dismissal begins.
