If your child is attending summer school, they may keep their device and it will be returned on the last day of summer classes.

END OF YEAR PARADE

Join us for our End of Year Parade to celebrate the school year. Teachers and staff will be lined up ready to wave good-bye to students on Wednesday, May 26th at 6PM.

The parade route will be Finnial Rd>Moonbeam Dr>Apogee Dr.

We ask families to only drive through the parade route once so our teachers can get home to their families at a reasonable time that evening.
