Parents and visitors, please observe the following:

The west parking lot entrance is an “enter only” lot for staff and visitor parking. When you are ready to leave campus, please use the one way exit loop that runs parallel to the bus lane.

The gym parking lot is reserved for staff parking during school hours and shall not be used as a pick up/drop off zone.

The bus lane/car exit area is reserved for busses only and is not to be used to pick up or drop off students. It shall not be used as a drive through lane for private vehicles.

It's Hip to Clip!

The classroom competition grows fierce for these little pink Boxtops for Education. Keep an eye out for the little guys on bag of chips, boxes of Kleenex , granola bars and ziplocks and many other common groceries. Each month a new classroom is awarded the reigning champion of the boxtops! Who will it be this month?
