  • Please remember that if your child is sent home due to illness, make sure that he/she is fever free for 24 hours before having them return to school. Also for continued safety of students during dismissal and arrival times, please make sure to drop off and pick up at designated school stops. DO NOT drop students off at the entrance of the school parking lot when attempting to catch a bus or block our drop off lane while waiting for students to exit.

  • If you are unable to access your child’s TeacherEase account please contact the office for a paper copy.

  • NO vehicles are permitted in the circle drive where buses drop off in the morning or afternoon and you must stay in your car when dropping off in the drop off lane.

  • If sending in snacks or treats for a class, please remember no home-baked goods can be shared. All items must be pre-packaged and in store box containers.

  • If your student will be gone for a doctor’s appointment, please have him/her bring a note from the doctor upon returning to school to show that they were there. Otherwise the absence will be marked unexcused by the school.

  • Please remember that there is NO SMOKING/VAPING on school grounds, and that seat belts should be fastened properly around children as they are being picked up or dropped off on school property.

  • Please remember to discuss with your student as to whether or not he/she will be eating breakfast/lunch that is offered at the school this year. Menus are available as needed.
