A Few Reminders

Please make sure your child is following the district dress code daily.


  • Running shorts and running leggings are not allowed.
  • Leggings may only be worn with dresses that meet the fingertip length guideline.
  • Boys hair length should be no longer than two inches on the top and one inch on the back and sides.



Also, we ask that all morning drop-offs take place in the front of the Intermediate. There is a lot of teacher and student traffic in the back lot in the mornings. Your child's safety is our first concern, so please help us with this issue.
