Important Car Rider Information:

If you plan on picking your child up after school, please send a note in with your child so their teacher and office staff are aware.  The car rider placard's purpose is to help our staff identify which car the child is to get into - we still need to receive communication from you that your child will be picked up.  If you are picking your child up on a permanent basis, we will accept a note covering the entire school year or a specific time period.


Reminder to parent volunteers and visitors:

Per Board policy, photos of students within the classroom are not to be taken without the permission of the teacher.  In addition to this policy, we request that photos not be published on any social media website.




It's official!!  All-day kindergarten has been approved for the 2018-2019 school year at no additional cost to families.  We are excited about the educational benefit that this will provide for our students!  If you have a child who will be 5 on or before August 1, 2018, they are eligible to attend. 



If your student rides a bus to/from school, please click here for information regarding the upcoming school year.  The following situations require a new transportation request form to be completed for your child: if your child is a kindergartener moving up to first grade; if you have moved to a new residence; or if you have made changes to your child's babysitter/daycare provider.  The transportation request form must be completed by July 16, 2018 to guarantee transportation at the beginning of the school year.
