Announcements

  • It's very important that your child is on time to school each day! In the morning students are placed into groups based on areas for growth or enrichment. This is a valuable 40 minutes of instruction. Instruction begins at 7:40 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.


  • If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Ms. Donna know by 2:40. This helps ensure that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change.


  • Remember! The car rider line is a cell phone free zone!


  • 3-5 parents, your child is provided with 3 masks by the district! We are noticing that some bus riders are forgetting to bring their masks each day! Please remind your child to bring a mask for bus riders!


  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area.


  • Please head over to our website to sign up for E-Notes. This will allow you to receive the weekly parent newsletter by email.



  • Your child may bring a water bottle to school and refill it our touch less water fountains.
