Lost and Found!

Now is a great time to check the lost and found for missing items! Any items not claimed by Winter Break will be donated.

Safety Reminder!

For the safety of all students, staff and parents, we ask that you and your children use all designated crosswalks coming to and from school. Please be extra cautious and courteous when passing carpool lines both morning and afternoon in your vehicle. Safety is our number one priority! As a reminder, cell phones are prohibited in a school zone and carpool line. We appreciate your support in ensuring the safety of everyone.
