Corner Captains - We Want YOU!

Traffic is still heavy and dangerous around the school during pickup and dropoff. Consider signing up for a 30-minute shift in the morning or afternoon to assist our teachers in keeping our Gators safe by serving as a Corner Captain. Experienced volunteers are available the the first two weeks, so if you sign up during that time, you will have someone to work along side you to show how easy it is!

Perseverance is March's Word of the Month. Perseverance is when we push ourselves to work through challenges to complete a difficult task.

Perseverance is difficult for Gators of all ages - families and students alike! Here's how to encourage young kids to persevere:


Notify the Office for Absences To Be Excused

We have a high number of unexcused absences right now - remember to notify the office when your child is unable to attend school during scheduled school days.
  • The best way to report an absence is to email
  • Please email every day your child is absent to ensure a complete record. Include any doctor's school excuse notes if you seek medical help.
  • If you prefer to call, call 1-380-997-6025 and leave a message. Avoid calling the main school line - it's extremely busy in the mornings! Leaving a detailed message is acceptable.
