News and Reminders

  • 2019-2020 School Calendar - has been published online including a slight revision to start time (8:10) for elementary school.



  • Peach Jar: Please make sure that you are receiving electronic flyers, as that is our sole source of communication this year in order to reduce cost associated with paper flyers. If you are not currently receiving them, visit their website and sign up manually. You can also opt out of certain types of flyers to lesson the number coming to your inbox. We suggest you at least accept school and PTO flyers so that you don't miss any important news.


  • Lunch menus: Can be found on this website which is updated monthly


  • Absences: Please remember to send a parent or doctor's excuse note within 3 days of your student returning from an absence.
