From Our Health Team

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

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.

Parking Lot

I wanted to take some time to reiterate student safety procedures during arrival and dismissal times. As always, student safety is our number one priority. Please review the procedures below, and follow them to ensure our students’ safety at all times.


Please remember:

You may park your car in this lot and walk your child across the bus lane; or you may drive up to the student drop-off area, have your child exit the car and walk on the sidewalk next to the building. If you are getting out of your car to assist your child, please park your car in the lot and do not park in the drop-off lane. Do not stop and park in the drop-off lane.


  • Use caution when driving through our lots.
  • Bus lanes must be kept open at all times.
  • Park in the designated parking spaces only and not along the curb.
  • Walk and get your child(ren) (when picking them up early or at dismissal time).
  • Do not leave you child(ren) unattended outside the school.


Thank you in advance for your assistance and cooperation.

From Our Health Department

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.
