Masks

Huskies did a great job wearing masks this week! We do want to let you know we cannot have masks with valves. While they protect what a student is breathing in, they do not filter what a student breaths out so they are not allowed on campus.

Thank you!

How to Locate Your Student's Bus Route

To find your child's route for M, T, Th and F, please go to THIS LINK. This is current as of 2/17/21.


If your child attends school on Wednesday, please go to THIS LINK. It will say Wednesday bus schedule, click to view.


If your child rides a special needs bus, families will be contacted directly with information by the bus driver or bus monitor before the week is over.

Picking Up Your Student Early

Sometimes we have appointments or other things that require us to pick up our student earlier in the day. Due to COVID-19 protocol, we have a little different procedure this year.


  • Please call the office when you arrive and let us know who you are picking up.
  • While we have your student gather their things and come to the office, please meet us at the front door where you can sign them out on a clipboard.
  • Please wear your mask.
  • We will not be able to just release them to your car for safety reasons.


Thank you!
