Dismissal on Settle Road

We will no longer release students at the second, Intermediate Dismissal from the Settle Road Ramp. We don't have enough adult coverage to main the gate. All Intermediate students (Grades 4th-6th) will still be escorted to the front of the campus by their teachers. The students are then welcome to walk up to Settle Road from there. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we want to be sure that all students are safe. Thank you!

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is back and running every Wednesday from 8:45-10:45 AM. Teachers submit work/projects that need to be completed for the classroom. Parents come in and work in our new LRC Building (Learning Resource Center) for a couple hours to complete those projects.

If you are interested, please complete the volunteer packet prior to arriving on campus. You will also need to bring your Driver's License to scan into our computer visitor system. If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Jenn in the front office.

Make-It, Take-It Parent Meeting

Come meet Santee's behavior team and find helpful strategies to implement at home. You'll leave with individualized strategies and resources that you can begin implementing right away. You'll have access to three team members to help you create individualized systems for your child! Listed above are just a few of the strategies you'll go home with!
