Dear Gladiator Families,

Hello Gladiator Nation!!

What a great second week in the Gladiator Nation! I was able to walk into many classes this week and see everything from plot analysis, to glow in the dark stickers, to Spanish practice, to HOT football practices. All of our Gladiator teachers are students are working hard! We are so proud!

Just some updates as we move into our second week of school:


Traffic has improved so much!! Thank you for al your help. Just a couple of reminders: there is no parking in the front pick up area. If your student is not out when you arrive, we ask you please circle around to get them. This helps our traffic flow. Please do not park along the street in the back of the bus loop or on street right outside our school. This does not allow for buses to enter or exit in a timely manner. Lastly, please do not pick up students in the Primrose parking lot. Not only does this cause issues for customers of the business, but causes a safety issue for students.


We are done with device distribution. If you need a device please contact our front office and we can get your information. Please remind students that there should be no phones or headphones in the hallways. They have done a great job so far. Also remind your student, for now, we are not allowing technology out during lunch.


We will begin selling snacks soon. We will inform our students during lunches when those will become available. Please remember we will not accept any outside deliveries or deliver outside lunches for students.

Academic Coaching/Clubs

We are almost done compiling this information. Once we do we will send out our academic coaching schedule for students and families, and send out a club list with meeting locations and times.

Class Balancing

We are still in the process of balancing classes. Thank you for your patience as we may have to move your child's schedule. We communicated this through a letter sent to families this past week.

Online Sports Tickets

The district has gone to an online ticketing system for tickets. You will not be able to purchase admission with cash at the game gates anymore. We will scan a QR code send to you when you purchase tickets online. See the information below.


Masks continue to be mandatory for any student, staff or visitors to our campus. See the District information here:
