Parents: Please keep the office updated on phone numbers and address changes. In case of an emergency, it is very important that we have these items updated. Please keep your Instant Alert number also updated.
Picking up and dropping off students: When dropping off students in the morning, PLEASE drop off on the access road NOT in the parking lot. For the safety of our students who are on the playground playing during morning recess, the driveway in front of the school is closed to traffic.
When picking up your child during school hours, parents are to come to the office. The office will call your child from his/her classroom for early dismissal or for pick up at the end of the day. When dropping off your child at the beginning of the day, parents are to check in at the office.
There will be no school on Monday, February 19th for students in grades K-12 due to President’s Day.
The MCA-III Reading Test will be administered to all students in grades 3 on April 10-12th and the MCA-III Mathematics will also be an online test on April 17th-19th.

PTA is going to be doing a Box Top Drive a little differently this year. 1 flyer and 1 baggie has been sent home with each student.
