Absences - Parents are to report student absences including early outs/late arrivals in their Skyward Family Access via an attendance request. This can be done in the app or on a desktop.

Skyward Family Access is available any place with an internet connection. Skyward Parent Link


Student Badges - All students will receive and must have their badges on them at all times. Badges will be used everyday to include: Bus Riding, Lunch Purchase, Library Checkout, etc. Replacements are available in the office for $5 each.


Student Dress Code - As we return from summer break, please remind your students of our dress code policy. Student Dress Code


Transportation - If your child will be riding the bus this year, you MUST complete the Transportation Request Form that can be found here.
