Changes in State Funding

Your kids need your help!!

We received a notice regarding cuts that will cut funding for our preschool classes, bilingual programs, reading services, and general programs because the state legislature has chosen to make drastic cuts in districts such as ours that rely on state funding. Our district will lose over $400,000 in funds. Please consider writing an email to your representative, Lisa Hernandez to protest this plan.

Sus hijos necesitan su ayuda !!

Hemos recibido una notificación sobre los recortes que reducirán el financiamiento de nuestras clases de preescolar, programas bilingües, servicios de lectura, y programas generales porque la legislatura estatal ha optado por hacer recortes drásticos en distritos como el nuestro, que dependen de la financiación estatal. Nuestro distrito perderá más de $ 400,000 en fondos. Por favor, que no escribe un correo electrónico a su representante, Lisa Hernández para protestar este plan.

Safe Drop off and Pickup

Just a reminder to parents that students can only be dropped off/picked up at the GREEN locations on this map. We understand that when the weather is colder you don't want your student to be out in the cold, but we cannot have parents picking up students in the bus lane due to safety concerns. Thank you for your cooperation!
