Snacks Available

Students are now able to purchase snacks from the school cafeteria when they get lunch. All snacks are $1.00. The cafeteria will not be able to issue change. Students must have exact change or have money on their account.

Interested in the PTA (Parent Teacher Association)

If you are interested in being an officer for the PTA please email our principal, Ms. Myrick at candacemyrick@spsk12.net. Thank you!

Door Safety

When entering or exiting the building please do not hold the door open for others. We certainly understand courtesy; however, for safety we need everyone to ring the buzzer and be allowed in by school personnel.

Attendance Matters

Attendance is an important part of your child's academic success! Both excused and unexcused absences affect academic progress and state reporting/accreditation status. Please keep students in school as much as possible. We want your child to be successful and our school to remain Fully Accredited!

If your child must be absent from school please be sure to notify the front office. You may send in a paper note or email our attendance clerk, Mrs. Moore at robinmoore@spsk12.net.

Car Rider Procedures

Student Drop Off - 9:00 - 9:25 a.m.

  • Please have students exit the car nearest the sidewalk (passenger side).
  • Parents are asked to remain in their vehicle.
  • Please do not pass cars or double park, forcing students to walk in traffic.
  • Please follow the direction of the car rider staff.
  • Students that arrive after 9:25 a.m. have to be escorted in the building through the front entrance by a parent/guardian.

Student Pick Up - 3:40 - 4:00 p.m.

  • Your 2022-23 Tag must be visible until your child is in the car with you.
  • Please be prepared to present your photo ID.
  • Please refrain from lining up for pick up prior to 3:30 p.m. to avoid traffic backup on Godwin Blvd.
  • Please follow the direction of the car rider staff.
  • Parents are asked to remain in their vehicle.


It is extremely important that parents communicate in writing how their student(s) will be getting home. It is recommended that parents stay as consistent as possible with transportation to and from school. If you would like your child to ride the school bus home please have them ride the bus to school. This helps eliminate confusion at dismissal time.

If at anytime parents need to change transportation, please communicate this with your child's teacher in writing.

Communication/Home Access Center

Please make sure that the school keeps updated contact information on file for you. We should have an updated phone number, email address, and mailing address. This information is used to keep you informed of upcoming events and important school topics.

Also, please check Home Access Center (HAC) frequently to ensure that you are updated on your students' academic progress.
