News and Reminders


  • 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.


  • Lost and Found: Our lost and found is full of coats again! Please ask your students to check for their items (and you are welcome to come look as well)!


  • Parking: Please do not park in the fire lane in the front of the school, or in the bus lot. Thank you for helping us to keep our arrival and dismissal procedures safe and efficient!
