    If you are planning on excusing your child early during a school day, please send your student with a note in the morning. They should bring the note to attendance office for a pass to leave class at the appropriate time.  They will need to sign-out in the attendance office before leaving the building for the day.

    This is the procedure for early dismissal will help expedite the students leaving early and reduce interruptions in the classroom.

    Thank you for your cooperation!

  • Apple Enews Emails

    For the past couple of years we have been using the email addresses from Power School as our source for sending enews and other important class communications electronically.  If your student graduates, advances from middle to high school, their information will get updated along with their student records.  If you “opt out”, you will not get any communications to that email address for any of your children throughout the district, even if you attempt to register to the enews system. 

    If you have "opted out" of receiving enews, please email indicating that you would like to be reinstated on Blackboard Connect.  Thank you!
