Principals' Corner

Parents, students must wear their ID badges while on campus. This is a security measure to ensure that all students on our campus should be here. Beginning next week, students will receive a consequence for not wearing their IDs. Students who lose their IDs can obtain a new one for $5.

Please drive slowly and courteously when near or on the campus. We want to keep our students and staff safe! See the traffic flow map here.
