News & Daily AssignmentsStudents:Check here for daily assignments and test dates. 

Assignments should also be written in your assignment notebook, unless you were absent, in which case a classmate will gather your work. It's your responsibility to find it on your desk, or in your mailbox when you return, unless your parents call to have it picked up, in which case we will send it to the office. You have one day for every day missed to get work turned in. 

*Weekly assignments are posted before the end of the first day of the school week. 

Assignments posted in advance are subject to change.

BUS RIDERS:

Our school buses are very near capacity. In fact, 3 of the 4 buses run two routes each afternoon. If you are having an after school play date, please make arrangements to pick up your student and his/her friend. While we will try to accommodate bringing friends home on the bus, it is often not possible. We also ask that students do not transport large instruments or projects on the bus. If your student cannot hold the item in his or her lap comfortably, please do not bring it on the bus. Please contact the Grade School Office if you have questions or need special arrangements made. Thank you for understanding!

PTO meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM in the Library

Arrival Time

Please DO NOT drop your child off before 7:50, unless s/he is for breakfast, in which case they may enter the building at 7:40.
There is NO supervision for students outside of the cafeteria until 7:50 AM.

Parents who are picking up or dropping off are asked to be careful to not block the handicap parking. The school is getting regular complaints from families needing to access these spots, yet are unable, because other drivers will not allow them in/out, or they take the spot when they should not.
