School Open Monday, October 14th

Please be advised that we do have school on Monday, October 14th. This is the start of the new nine weeks.

NO cell usage during drop off & dismissal

Parents- this is a friendly reminder that we ask you do NOT use your cell phone while dropping your student(s) off or picking them up. We have had many accidents due to lack of concentration. If we see that you are using your cell phone during these times, your information will be given to our police officer. Please help keep our students, staff, and campus safe!

Open Lunch for Parents

Below are a few reminders for parents that come and eat lunch with their student(s). Please make sure you are following these rules:


  • Please do not touch food on the serving line. Students are supposed to pick their items according to State Guidelines.
  • Please sit at the back table and wait for your student.
  • Please do not offer food to other students, even if they are related to you. Food sharing is not permissible.
  • Do not invite others to sit with you and your child.
  • Please remember that your student needs to follow their set schedules and need to return to their class so they may follow the routine.
  • Do not take pictures, for some students are not allowed to have their picture taken.
