Updates around campus

* We are noticing a lot of students leaving after school and heading to Wendy's or other places. They then come back and take the late bus. Please know that this is not allowed. They will no longer be allowed on the bus once they leave campus.


* All Gus Garcia bus riders must be to the pick up area by 6:40. They will leave at 6:55 and will no longer wait for students that are late.

It's getting cold outside!

As the weather gets colder and the jackets are brought out, please make sure that your student is not wearing a jacket with a hood.

Hoodies are not allowed on campus per the student handbook.

Dia De los Muertos

El Día de los Muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday that honors the dead November 1 & 2. It is a joyful celebration in remembrance of the loved ones who have passed away. For these celebrations our students had the opportunity to do a project to honor someone!
