Dinosaurs Live is an interactive educational experience that will introduce students and their families to prehistoric times when dinosaurs used to roam the earth. Our team will turn the cafeteria into a land before time and bring 8 different lifelike dinosaurs for families to learn about. Dinosaurs Live is provided 100% free to our school, school district, students, and families. Dinosaurs Live sells popcorn, cotton candy, beverages, souvenirs, face painting, and slide wristbands. We hope you will plan to attend!!

Please take note that there are a few changes this year to our attendance policy and how/why students would need to make up attendance hours. Every student must attend 93% of the days class is in session to receive credit. Once a student misses more than 93% they must complete attendance makeup to receive credit. Attendance make up is $5 per hour and completed during Night School (Tuesday/Thursday)(3:35-7:30pm) or Saturday school (8-3:30pm).
** Changes ** A student will be required to make up hours even with a doctor's note if they do not attend school on the day of the note. For an absence to count as a medical excuse and not count in the 93% rule, your student MUST attend school during the day either before or after their appointment. If they do not attend school it will count against their 93% rule and be subject to attendance makeup, even with a doctors excuse.
Please do not hesitate to call the school office (254-687-2922 ext 120) with any questions regarding this change.
NOTE: AFTERNOON ATTENDANCE DOES COUNT TOWARD MAKE UP HOURS
