If you need to get a message to your child or change your student pick up and departures for the day, please call by 2:30 p.m. to insure we get the change correct in the office.  Calling later than this could cause problems with getting the information to your child in time.

Please call in absences by 9:00 am when your student is out of school for the day.

If your student has a doctor, dental, or professional appointment please get a school excuse for that and turn it into the office upon returning.

We are a uniform school. Please make sure your student is dressed in uniform daily. We know there is sometimes a reason not to have one on. Please call the office and let us know. We have a uniform bank where we gladly take and exchange uniforms.

We are having some issues with outside food coming to school.  Snacks such as Takis, Hot Cheetos, and assorted snacks like this are causing many issues throughout the school day and we ask that students not bring outside snacks to school. Please know that your child is provided a healthy afternoon snack each day before going home.
