Holiday pictures are scheduled for Tuesday, December 8.

Thank you all for a successful toy drive!

Unless they are ill, please have your child/ren at school every day!

  • Absenteeism, especially chronic absenteeism, negatively affects a student's progress in school.
  • If a student is doing face-to-face and needs to miss a day, they are marked absent. Students are not allowed to miss a day and do their work remotely, with the expectation of being marked present for the day. It simply doesn't work that way.

Remote students must be on time to class, keep their cameras on, and take all assessments with their classes.

Remote parents, please use the chat feature when you have a question for a teacher. We are receiving complaints about parents interrupting a class to ask questions. Also, we cannot stress it enough... please allow your child/ren to do their own work! Helping your child rather than allowing them to experience productive struggle will impede their progress and cause them to fall behind.
