  • Extra yearbooks are available in the office! Softcover $20 Hardcover $25

  • From Coach May Transportation Director: Any student not riding their regular bus must have a note signed by the office. We have several students each day that we are having to try and call parents to make sure they are going to the right place.

  • Remember! The car rider line is a cell phone free zone!

  • Instruction begins at 7:40 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.

  • 3-5 parents, your child is provided with 3 masks by the district! We are noticing that some bus riders are forgetting to bring their masks each day! Please remind your child to bring a mask for bus riders!

  • You may send a water bottle to school with your child and they may refill it at our touchless water refilling station.
