2023-2024 Rosters

Thank you to everyone who submitted their Roster Consideration Forms at the start of April. We've begun assembling and setting rosters for next year. We're taking our time to ensure rosters are balanced in regards to student academic success, behaviors, peer relationships, staff connections, and considerations submitted by parents. Our goal is to have rosters finalized by mid-May and to share who your child's teacher is for next year before we leave for the summer. On Monday, May 22nd, students will participate in Move Up Day where they will get to meet their teacher for next year and spend some time in their classroom. We look forward to students and staff starting to build relationships at the end of May and provide another reason to be excited for the 2023-2024 school year!

Negative Lunch Balance Notices

Just a little reminder about the Negative Lunch Balance Notices your child may receive, students with siblings at other schools are all linked together - so a charge might be from a different school. If your student/family are on Free/Reduced and you student wishes to get an extra milk, al a cart item, or brings a cold lunch and needs a milk those items are not included in the Free/Reduced program so you will be responsible for those charges. If you have any questions or need more information about this please feel free to contact the office and we would be happy to discuss this further with you.


Healthy Snack Program

Each Tuesday and Thursday, our Food Services program provides a healthy snack to all students. The healthy snacks vary and students are encouraged to try new healthy fruits and vegetables. Students are always allowed to say "no" if they do not want to try the snack. Each month, I will share some information about some of the healthy snacks that will be provided. Check out the link below to some of the snacks that will be offered this month...

Student Illness

If your child is not feeling well, please use the guidelines below to help determine if your student is able to attend school or not. If your child is not well enough to attend school, please be sure to contact the school to inform us of their absence.
