Back To School Party

The weather is looking great for our Back To School Party on Thursday. The party will be on the playground from 6-8. Bring the whole family! We will have a food truck, Kona Ice truck, and the bubble bus! We look forward to seeing everyone and kicking off an AMAZING school year!

Please note the building will not be open during the party. The closest restroom will be at Crestwood Park.

Meet The Teacher Grades 1-5

Meet the Teacher will be on Thursday, August 17th.

We know our students are excited to meet their teachers and bring all those school supplies to their classrooms!

Just a reminder, we ask you please sign up for a time on this sign up genius. Having three time slots limits crowds, parking issues, and most importantly give you and your child a more relaxed experience with your teacher.

Our school supply lists can be found here.

Kindergarten meet the teacher will be on Thursday, August 17th from 5:00-5:45.

Our Kindergarten team has sent home Kindergarten Orientation Information. If you did not receive the video please let us know. If you did not get an email from your Kindergarten teacher please reach out or check your spam.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

School Hours are 8:45-3:35

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures


Doors will open at 8:35. Students will be entering the building through the main entrance. They may stop and get breakfast in the cafeteria.

All children who are late to school after 8:45 a.m. will need to sign in at the office.

Morning Drop Off:

Long staff members will begin arrival at 8:35. Students arriving to school before 8:35 will not have adult supervision outside.

In the morning, caregivers will drop off and students will enter the building by using the main entrances indicated on the image below. We ask that caregivers do not get out of the car in the pick-up line. We will have adults direct students on the crosswalk. If you need to walk your child to the front doors please park and do not go through the drop off line.

Afternoon Pick-Up:

Car Riders:

We ask that all caregivers download the PikMyKid app, see information below. This app allows you to check in and adds your child's name to our list. We also have a staff member outside to assist in this checking in process. Caregivers that pick-up will enter through the parking lot's main entrance and form two lines. If your student is a pick-up they will wait in the gym until their name is called. Caregivers do not get out of the car. We will have staff members walk your children out and to the cars after the car line stops moving.

*This process is slower the first few days as our youngest students learn the routine

Walkers will be dismissed out the front doors.

Bus riders will be walked to the bus by a teacher.

2023-24 Annual Verification of Student Information

Completing your student's required paperwork through the Annual Verification process each summer helps us prepare for a successful start to the school year.

Each year, our district requires Annual Verification of information to be completed for all new and returning students. This helps us guarantee bus transportation, confirm contact information, assign teachers and create student schedules, learn about your student's health needs, and make sure meal accounts are set up and ready to go.
