1. WELCOME TO 2022! Unfortunately our return to school comes at a time when we are seeing the numbers of COVID-19 cases spike to levels we have not experienced in nearly a year. Below you can read the letter sent to your parents from Dr. Harold Olin, Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Olin addresses the COVID-19 numbers and how mask use has helped us increase the number of students we are able to keep in the classroom as opposed to sitting out of school due to exposure to others who test positive for COVID-19.

2. WE NEED YOUR HELP :) As we return to school be sure to have a mask and wear it properly when appropriate during your time at school. We've had a number of students who have been dependent on the school to provide daily disposable masks. Our supply of those masks is dwindling and will run out soon. Please make sure you have a mask and a back up (in case you lose one) each day. Everyone's cooperation with mask usage will help us continue to minimize the number of days students must be away from school due to COVID exposure.

3. Quarter 2/Semester 1 Report Cards will be available in your PowerSchool account on January 7th after 1:00 p.m.

4. Are you interested in joining the Junior High Swimming/Diving Team? Information can be found below in the flyer section.

5. Are you in need of Food Support? Check out the Food Support Resources 2021-2022 document in the download section below to find locations and times for specific food support.

6. Math Tutoring UPDATE: If you will attend any of our after school sessions on Thursdays please review the following expectations:

  • Students need to bring some math to work on
  • Phones need to be muted and put away
  • Students that are OFF TASK may be asked to leave the session and their parents will be contacted

7. Afternoon Car Rider Line - While in line please pull your cars up to the car in front of you. If we can avoid gaps in the line this will help keep the line moving smoothly and safely.
