It has been great to have our Lancers back in the building, we hope they are as happy to be back as we are to have them back!! Please keep in mind school starts at 8:30 AM, and dismissal is staggered with the final dismissal at 3:45 PM. Please also remember to make sure the screener is filled out prior to your student coming to school.


Great job to all of our Lancers on the Forward test last week, we know you all did your best and we are so proud of you!! Our distance learners will be coming to the building Wednesday to complete the Forward testing.


We will have material pick up this week for our distance learners. Please stop by between 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM to pick up any materials your distance student might have. We will also be having our virtual expo Thursday, May 13!! Do you have a student coming here next year? Make sure you tune in so they can see all the awesome opportunities McNeel has to offer and meet some of our amazing staff!
