It is time to bring those BoxTops to school. You can send them taped to the flyer that was sent home, or you can send them in a baggie. Make sure baggies and flyers are labeled with the teacher name and grade. Thank you for supporting Rasor!

POLICY - Tardies and Absences


A note must be sent in within 3 days after returning for the absent to be considered excused. The absence will be unexcused if this does not occur.


School begins at 7:45. If a student arrives after the front doors have been closed, they will be tardy and need to check in with the office. Tardy students should be brought in by a parent.

NEW - The nurse is in need of pants of all sizes, especially for boys

If you have pants your child has outgrown, we would appreciate having them! Please put them in a bag and send with your child or drop it off in the front office. Thank you for helping us!

Science Vocabulary Hat Day was today - Wow, did we have some awesome hats! Thank you parents and students for making this happen.
