Student Absences/Excuses

Student Excuses/Absences may be mailed to

Please note: Messages sent to this address would replace the Blue Excuse Form. Blue Excuse Forms may still be used if you are not sending an email.

Safety During Entry / Dismissal

We've noticed a lot of families walk in between our buses during entry and dismissal. Walking in between a car is scary enough at knee height, in between school buses is waist height and there is more chance to have a severe injury. Please either use the crosswalk, walk up the sidewalk by the flagpole or wait until the buses have left before entering the school entry way. We want to keep everyone safe and would appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.
