Our Vision and Mission

"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing." - Pele


If you will be out, please make every effort to put the absence into Alio as soon as possible. This week we ran into several sub positions not being filled which causes us to have to use instructional assistants to sub for those classes. In rare cases, we have more vacancies than we are able to fill with instructional assistants, therefore we have to sprinkle students among the grade level. Although we all work as a team and are willing to do what it takes, we ask that you take steps to alleviate that concern, both for your colleagues as well as your students. We would rather you put in the absence at 6:00, when you aren't feeling well, than to wait until 11:00, when you still aren't feeling well, to request a sub. If you need a tutorial on how to request a sub, please see Mrs. Sheftman. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
