WINTER APPAREL

Students WILL be going outside for recess unless it's below zero with the wind chill. Its very important that all students have a winter coat, snow pants, boots, hat and gloves. Without snow pants and boots students are asked to remain on the blacktop.

What is Parent Portal?

PowerSchool has been updated to the newest version (9.1.1) which includes a new parent portal called the Single Sign On (SSO). This new application will allow each parent to create their own account with their own user name and password and tie multiple students to their accounts. After signing in you can see grades, attendance, and homework assignments.

Please sign up for this additional tool to keep you informed on your students progress.
