We want all of our Coyotes to be safe and supervised at all times. If your student does not ride the bus to school, please use our Bingham Street drop-off area for safety and efficiency. Beginning at 9:15 there will be supervision to welcome students at that area of the school. If you arrive prior to 9:15, it is important that you stay with your child until you hear the 9:15 bell. Please do not drop off in front of the school on 128th, unless you plan to park and come into the office with your child. Thank you for your cooperation!


If you wish for your child to ride a bus other than the one they normally ride, get off at a bus stop other than their normal stop, or change to parent pick-up, please send a note with your child in the morning. We must have a note to allow students to change their of end-of-day routine. Also, in case of an emergency for which you cannot send a note, please call prior to 3:30 to ensure we have time to communicate the change to the teacher and the student. For best service, we encourage you to send a note in the morning with your child; thank you for your support.

News from the PTA!

Box Tops Drive:

We will be collecting Box Tops November 18th-December 13th. Information will go out next week, including the collection sheet to attach Box Tops and information about how to submit electronic Box Tops online. Box Tops equals free money! In the past we have used money earned from Box Top collections to purchase things like balls and jump ropes for recess. Turning in your Box Tops helps us help the school. Thank you for your support!
