Drop-Off and Pick-Up

We are requesting your cooperation with helping our loops run smoothly at both arrival and dismissal each day!

Please DO NOT GET OUT OF YOUR CAR when dropping off or picking up your child from either the front or side loops. If you would like to assist your child out of the car or walk them to class, we ask that you PARK in the PARKING LOT and then walk them to their gate. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE LOOP TO WALK YOUR CHILD TO THE GATE.

As always, please put ALL THE WAY FORWARD before your child exits the car to allow as many families as possible to move through the loop.

Slowing the flow of traffic in the loop extends the wait time for everyone using the loop and extends traffic into the side streets near Paloma.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Qualtrics - Health Screening

Please be sure to complete the Qualtrics Health Screening for your child each school day BEFORE they come on campus. An email is sent each morning to your child's school email address with a link to the health screening, you can also access it here: QUALTRICS link ~ OR we have the QR code posted at each of the entrance gates that you can scan with your phone to complete the survey. Thank you so much for helping us keep our students safe and healthy.

Masks and Water Bottles

Please remember to send your child to school with a mask and a water bottle each day. We have some replacement masks but are going through them at an exceptionally quick rate. It is recommended that students come to school with a mask to wear that day as well as a backup mask in their backpack that they can use should their mask become soiled or lost.

Also, all water fountains are closed at this time due to health and safety concerns. Students have access to faucets to fill their water bottles as needed.

Thank you in advance for your help in sending your children to school with masks and water bottles each day. Thank you!

Requesting donations of Plastic Cups

We have a need for plastic cups to provide for students that do not have water bottles so that they can fill the cup at the faucets on campus. Water fountains are closed at this time due to health/safety concerns.

We are in need of plastic cups, about 9 oz size, that are not too flimsy. Cup sizes larger than 10 ounces hold too much water to be at student desks and are easy to knock over. Any color is fine.

If you are interested in donating plastic cups, please send your donation to the school with your child for use in their classrooms or to bring to the front office for campus use. Thank you so much!

Birthday Celebrations

At this time, we cannot permit food to be brought in to share with classmates as part of a birthday celebration. We absolutely wish to recognize and celebrate our students' birthdays!

If you would like to send something in to celebrate your child's birthday, please consider non-food items such as bookmarks, pencils, shape erasers, or another non-food item. Additionally, we do have a Birthday Book donation program. You can read more about it here:
