Safety During Entry / Dismissal

We've noticed a lot of families walk in between our buses during entry and dismissal. Walking in between a car is scary enough at knee height, in between school buses is waist height and there is more chance to have a severe injury. Please either use the crosswalk, walk up the sidewalk by the flagpole or wait until the buses have left before entering the school entry way. We want to keep everyone safe and would appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.

From Our Health Department

If your child is fully vaccinated for COVID-19, please submit submit a copy of the vaccination card to the health room.

The majority of our students are following mask expectations each day and all day. As a reminder it is the district expectation that all students wear masks appropriately (covering their nose and mouth) while inside the school building and on buses.

Please emphasize the importance of this expectation. We need to maintain safe and consistent practices and avoid defiance issues.
