After School Playground Use
Please be aware that our after-school latchkey program uses the playgrounds each day, starting around 4 p.m. If you decide to stay on school grounds after dismissal please avoid those areas being used by the latchkey program. This will allow our staff to monitor our after-school care kids and ensure safety.

PTA Dues Update
This year, the national PTA voted to raise their dues. Due to this increase in the national PTA dues, our school will be increasing our individual dues to offset the shortage we would incur. Beginning in July 2023, the individual dues will be $10 for a year membership. Thank you for your understanding!
