  • Flash drives and packets which are picked up one week are to be turned in the following week. Attendance will be documented each week based on the work turned in from the previous week.

For Parents who bring their students to school in the morning:
With the colder temperatures coming, the outside thermometers are starting to be inconsistent with their readings. Beginning tomorrow, November 19th, students who are dropped off at school will be using the temperature screener inside the front door, instead of having their temperature taken when they get out of the vehicle.

Parents can continue driving out the exit after letting their child out of the car, but are asked to keep their cell phone available in case their child’s temperature ends up being too high, resulting in the parent coming back to pick up their child.

January 29th will be the last day to personalize your yearbook!ybook
 To place your order you may fill out the
Order Form and bring your payment to school and see Mrs. Mooney or place your order on-line at » Order Your Yearbook.

We are asking All Parents/Guardians to up-date their child's
Contact Information along with their Emergency Health Information.
It is crucial that we are able to make contact with a parent/guardian of every student (Hybrid and Virtual). You may fill out the forms on-line and email back to us, print and send it to school with your child, or if we need to send you a paper copy let us know.
Please feel free to call the school if you need any assistance.
