Dear Parents and Guardians,
Please be sure to take note of the message below from the District Office regarding the Central Road and Northwest Highway upcoming intersection closure at the railroad tracks. If you cross this intersection bringing your child to school, you may have to account for a little extra time. Most importantly, if your child crosses the tracks at that intersection while riding a bike or walking to or from school, please be sure to review an alternate safe route with your child.
This time of year there are so many opportunities for students to celebrate! Please be sure to check through this list of permissions/payment deadlines for upcoming events:
Great America Field Trip: Parent Permission and Payment due Monday, April 25, 2022.
Permission form below. We are now required to follow deadlines set by Great America and must supply our final ticket count several weeks prior to the event date. Once we purchase the group tickets for the field trip there are no refunds or exchanges, and no additional tickets can be purchased through the group rates.
