School Information


If your child misses school…

Please send a note or doctor's excuse with your child explaining the absence. 
Please refer to Student Code of Conduct pages 11-13 for absence information.

If your child is late to school…

Please have your child come into the office to sign in.  A parent does not need to come in with their child.
A note is needed for the tardy to be excused.  Children are tardy after 7:45.


If your child needs to be picked up from school…

Please send a note to the office for early dismissal.  It is a great help to the office to call a few minutes before you get here!
You will need to sign your child out using our computer system in the front office.

If your child is picked up from school on a regular basis…

You may be interested in signing up for the Student Pick-Up Loop.  

If your child needs to ride another bus home…

Please check the overcrowded bus list before making plans for your child to ride another bus.
Send a note in with your child’s first and last name and the first and last name and bus number of the child they are riding home with.  The bus will not drop off a child at an address that is not already a bus stop.

All adult visitors must sign in...

Using our computer system in the office. 
You will receive a visitor’s badge that you must wear.   Please sign out before leaving.


Parent Drop-Off Loop & No Parking Zones

Please note that the Parent-Drop Off loop located at the side of the school is a No Parking Zone.
This is a safety measure for our students, staff, parents and community.
In addition, note other No Parking Zones on school grounds as well.
