Device delivery

Several of you have asked for assistance with delivering devices to families without transportation. As of right now, there is no devices delivery service. However, staff members can check out devices on behalf of the student and deliver them to the family.


If you interested in helping to deliver devices to families in need, please reach out to Mr. Soto.


If you have a family that is in this situation and needs a device, please reach out to Mr. Soto and provide him with the student's name and information.

REMINDER: Sign in and Out when you come to pack up

Please be sure to sign in and out when you come to the school to pack up your rooms. The sign in table is at the front on the table to the left. This will help us keep track of when people leave so we do not have to go up and down every hall each day.

School Supplies kits for NEXT YEAR

Some parents have begun to inquire whether or not we will be doing the School Supplies kits again next year. We WILL continue to have this next year. I will be including details in my parent newsletter tomorrow. Here is the link to view the online supply kit shop and post on your pages. I will send the digital flyer once I receive it from the company. The deadline for orders is July 6th.

Student Pictures...

We have received a number of request for student pictures. We reached out to the photographer, and due to the closure of the printing company producing the photos, they are unable to get all of the photos printed. Please let parents know we apologize for the inconvenience and will hopefully be able to distribute them at the beginning of next school year.
