Lost & Found

We have a lot of jackets who need to be returned to their owners! Students are able to walk by the lost and found tables each day to find their coats and jackets. Parents can also come to the front office to look for their children's coats and jackets.


Congrats to LEAD Ballet Folklorico!

The LEAD ballet folklorico team received first place at the Bailes De Mi Tierra competition. Way to go girls keep up the great work!

Thank you to all our parents for adjusting to our new dismissal line up for car riders. We appreciate you lining up along Apogee Road as Finnial Road and Moonbeam Road (behind the school) remain closed.

Please make sure you have your student's car tag displayed in your dashboard at pickup. If you need an additional car tag, please visit our front office and present your ID to be issued a new one.

  • If you are going to change how your child goes home, please communicate this with the front office by 2:00PM
  • If you are going to pick your child up from school before dismissal, please pick them up no later than 2:30PM. To ensure the safety of our students and that everyone gets home, we will not pull students from classrooms after 2:30PM.
  • Parents are prohibited from pulling a student off the bus at dismissal.
  • Students will be released during the school day only to persons listed in Skyward.
