CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
