A Message from the Principal

The office team would like to thank you all for your support in communicating with us about absences. If you have any questions please reach out we are here to help. We had our first PTA Association meeting last night where we learned about the ways they support our school. We also learned that getting involved is easy and there are many ways to volunteer, if you have lots of time, or even if you have a little time.


With respect and admiration,

Mrs. Dominguez, Principal

Our Neighbors

Our school neighbors have kindly asked that we remind parents to NOT block their driveways when dropping off and picking up. Also we noticed a few cars unattended in the middle of the street can cause traffic to back up and possible accidents. Safety is our utmost concern and we thank you in advance for making sure we keep everyone safe and ticket free.
