First Week of School

We had a successful first week of school! It was great seeing old and new faces at our school. The Rose Ceremony was a success and we had beautiful weather for most of the week. We are still not totally in the clear, so if we are in orange or above, we will be indoors. This includes morning drop off time.

For morning drop off please pull up all the way to the far gate to drop off your children. If you would like to park and walk your children in, please use the crosswalk. Please drive slowly and cautiously in our parking lot.

Welcome Packets

Welcome Packets were sent home this week. There is a lot of important paperwork that needs to be signed and returned to the office. Please get them in at your earliest convenience. If your child did not come home with one, please pick one up in the office.


Free and Reduced Lunch Form

It is important that families fill out this form even if you do not plan on getting a school lunch for your children. It gives important demographic information to the district that can help us get additional funding for our school. Please follow the link below:
