Per district guidelines and the student handbook:


Students are not to board an unassigned bus. Parents/guardians must request a bus pass at least 24 hours in advance from the principal and the principal must coordinate bus passes with the transportation department. Therefore, same day passes will not be granted. Students must bring notes for bus changes to the office before the beginning of classes for approval. Students will not be permitted to leave class throughout the day as we make every effort to protect instructional time.


We are gearing up for our Harvest Festival and need your assistance! We are seeking donations of candy, sodas, small prizes, and cakes. We are also looking for some volunteers. Thank you for your support! With your assistance it will be a fun filled evening and a great fund raiser for our school! See the attached document for more information.
