Construction Update:
As you arrive on campus, you will notice that construction is still happening. We ask that all students be dropped off at the High School's front door and for all non-district/construction staff vehicles to remain in the front parking lot. You will not be able to drive around the Elementary Building due to construction. 

Due to the construction, middle and high school lockers will be assigned during the first week of school. Chromebooks will also be handed out at this time.

Health and Safety:

Health and safety guidelines will be similar to last year, but we will provide a comprehensive report when it is finalized.

School Supplies:

Thanks to the generous donation from The Mohawk-McKenzie Grange and the Hope Project, we were able to waive the elementary school supply fee this year! Students will be provided with all necessary school supplies.

Middle and high school students will also benefit from donations but their full supply lists can be found here.


Go Eagles!
Lane Tompkins, Superintendent
