New Information To Share:

Professional Development Day: A reminder that this Friday, October 5th is a professional development day for our staff. Students do not attend as our teachers will be learning about effective assessment and our support staff will have training on trauma informed practice.

Thanksgiving Weekend: Also a reminder that next Monday is Thanksgiving and there is no school.

Parking and Pick Up/Drop Off: We will be getting new signage shortly and at that time we will be enforcing the pickup/drop off expectations. The front of the school will be only for busses and access to the parking lot. All pick up and drop off will need to occur not he East side of the school.
