Summer

IMPORTANT!!!!! SCHOOL START TIME CHANGES

Secondary(6th-11th grade) hours: Arrive by 7:45am (TARDY at 7:46)- Dismiss at 3:30pm


Elementary (K-5) hours: 8:00am-3:30pm (Same as this year) Keeping in mind that morning assembly begins at 7:45am.


All students will now release at the same time. In order to make this work, we had to adjust the secondary school start time. Students will be tardy after 7:45am rather than 8:00am.


Doors will still open at 7:00am with breakfast being served from 7:00am-7:30am

WE NOW OFFER TRANSPORTATION

2019-2020 School Supply Lists

The school supply lists for 2019-2020 school year are now available. These are for Kinder-8th grade only. High school students will receive their requirements the first week of school. (It's always a good idea to have pencils, notebook paper and a binder to get started :)

Immunization/Shot records

Some of you may have received a letter about your child's shot records. Immunizations are required by law, and students whose records are not current will not be allowed to attend school after September 1st. Please make sure your child is current on their immunizations and that the school has them on record. :) Thank you for your help!
