Important notes and information

  • ACAP scores will be available during parent meetings on Parenting/report card day, which is on October 17. You will receive information on scheduling pickup times as the date draws near.


  • We are having some major bus issues, especially in the afternoon. If your child is a bus rider, please speak to him/her about the importance of staying seated, quiet, and keeping their hands, feet, and all personal objects to themselves.


  • Car riders are to be dropped off from the carpool lines beginning at 7:15 am. Please do not park your vehicle in order to walk your child to the door. STUDENTS CANNOT BE DROPPED OFF AND LEFT ALONE BEFORE CAR POOL BEGINS. SUPERVISION IS NOT PROVIDED UNTIL 7:15.


  • PreK drop-off begins at 7:45. SIBLINGS OF PRE-K STUDENTS ARE TO ENTER THE SCHOOL THROUGH THEIR DESIGNATED DOORS, NOT THE PRE-K DOORS, UNLESS THEY ARE 4TH GRADERS. Please see the Morning Drop-off Map link near the bottom of the Smore for the doors that students are to enter.



  • NO STUDENTS ARE TO BE DROPPED OFF OR PICKED UP ON SUNSET BLVD, which is the street in front of the 5th grade building that is blocked by the large gate, or on UNIVERSITY BLVD. Students are not supervised and it's dangerous.
