For Parents

Parents and schools need to work together for the betterment of the students. Parents play an important role in providing support and building the confidence of their children. Parents should check some of the tips or activities they can use to develop their children’s confidence and improve their school experience. 

At this time, we are asking for your help in our effort to develop our students in becoming the best in the district. In order to make this happen, we need to restate our basic expectations for the benefit of all of our students.
     - Parents are not allowed in the school (remember, we have over 1200 parents, and for security reasons, this is not permissible)
     - Students in grades 1-3 will enter through the Wallace Street entrance and go into the gymnasium
     - Students in grades 4-5 will enter through the Wallace Street doors and go into the cafeteria
     - Look for signs posted for Kindergarten students entrance 
     - School starts at 8:05 and ends at 2:35. Please pick up your children promptly.
     - Please observe a 10 foot clearance from doors during dismissal time to allow for safe egress
     - Access to school/office is limited to the hours of 8:30-2:00 unless by appointment
