Parents we really need your help! Our front office staff cannot continue to serve as part of a delivery service for fast food lunches being delivered by parents. Also, please be mindful that students are not allowed to call for delivery for themselves (Uber Eats, pizza delivery, etc.).  Please be reminded that if students bring their lunch to school, they should bring their lunch with them in the morning.  We do understand that from time to time students leave their lunch in the car, on the bus, or at home and you need to bring it for them.  The delivery of fast food by parents during lunch time has become overwhelming for our front office staff.  To that end, we ask; parents please refrain from delivering fast food lunches to your child during the school day.

Report Cards were distributed on Thursday, March 23, 2017!  Parents you should have them in your possession. There were several items included in your child’s report card envelope.  Please be sure that you have signed any necessary documents including the envelope and return appropriate items to school for your child to turn in to their homeroom teacher.
