    General Information 

    Please remember that our school doors do not open until 8:00. 

    With the cold weather moving in, it's important that students not be at school until 8:00. 

    In our effort's to social distance, we are continuing to have children that are dropped off at 8:00 go to the gym or to the lunchroom for breakfast. 

    If they are not coming for breakfast, students are encouraged to come to school after 8:13 and go straight to their home room. 

     

    After School Study Hall:  All students are welcome to attend from 3:30 - 4:20 on Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays. No RSVP necessary. 

     

    Lost and Found:  We keep items that appear expensive, such as jewelry and electronics, in the office.  Please check with us if you don't find what you're looking for on the Lost and Found tables.

     

    Cold Weather Reminders: 

    In the event that we have a "late start", school will always start at 10:00.  Late starts will be announced on the local news, facebook and via the school one call system.  If you have not received a one call yet this year, please let Traci know in the office so we can double check the settings.

     

    Students that are riding a bus, whether it is a bus route or a game bus, need to have appropriate winter attire along in order to ride in bitter cold weather.
