Traffic Safety Tips


A reminder to please reduce your speed and drive at 25 mph when in our school zone.

In our continuing effort to ensure the safety of our students, parents, and other community members in and around our school, we need everyone to adhere to the rules of the road, including driving, parking, and pedestrian movements.

The front of the school is not a pick up or drop off zone. Use the main parking lot (near the baseball fields) as a drop off and pick up area.


DATA Counselors will not be available for meetings on the first day of school, they will be out of their office greeting the students and helping with their first day of school. If your child is placed in the wrong academic courses (math, science, language arts, social studies) please make an appointment online, send an email, or leave a voicemail for them to contact you. If your child did not receive any of their selected electives, please fill out the schedule change form available in the office or their counseling website. Elective changes will not be made without this form. As a friendly reminder, students are not guaranteed their first choice elective and changes will not be made after the second week of school.

Experienced Wrestling Coach Needed

We are in need of a volunteer wrestling coach for the 19-20 season. This would require hosting after school practices twice a week and a weekly evening match at various locations. If you are interested, please call the office @ 641-5165.

Thank you!
