It's Teacher Appreciation Week!

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week! Why not jot your teacher a note about how much they are appreciated? Our teachers are the best and they work so hard to be sure they are prepared for our students to learn. This is a great time to thank them for spending their time with your child!

After 8:20?

If your student arrives after 8:20, we ask you to park and walk them into the school to get a tardy slip. This is for your student's safety. Also remember that students should not be dropped off in the parking lot, only in the drop off lane. Again, this is to keep all of our students safe, and we appreciate you following those procedures.

PLEASE HELP!!! SAFETY ISSUE!

We've noticed quite a few parents dropping off students in the front parking lot instead of going through the car rider line. Remember, if you are not walking in with your student, you should go through the car rider line. Dropping students off in the front parking lot is a serious safety concern. Our car rider line moves very quickly in the morning and is the safest way to get your student into the school. Thank you for following this request.
