  • Teachers will be communicating details for the Valentine parties. If you have any questions please reach out to your child's teacher! Students in kindergarten through 4th grade can bring a box. 5th graders will create something in class. Only students will participate this year (no parents).

  • It's very important that your child is on time to school each day! In the morning students are placed into groups based on areas for growth or enrichment. This is a valuable 40 minutes of instruction. Instruction begins at 7:40 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.

  • From Coach May Transportation Director: Any student not riding their regular bus must have a note signed by the office. We have several students each day that we are having to try and call parents to make sure they are going to the right place.

  • Remember! The car rider line is a cell phone free zone!

  • 3-5 parents, your child is provided with 3 masks by the district! We are noticing that some bus riders are forgetting to bring their masks each day! Please remind your child to bring a mask for bus riders!

  • You may send a water bottle to school with your child and they may refill it at our touchless water refilling station.

  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor pavilion. Lunch times: 4th grade 10:30-11:00, 1st grade 11:00-11:30, 3rd grade 1:30-12:00, Kindergarten 12:00-12:30, 2nd grade 12:30-1:00, 5th grade 1:00-1:30.

  • The updated school calendar for the 2020-2021 school year can be found here
