School Messenger Launch

We have offically transitioned to school messenger information being sent by email and text messages. I hope you have familiarized yourself with Infocenter and have chosen to “opt in” to text messages/email.  I communicate very important news from the school weekly.


Track Change Request

Track change input for the 2017-2018 school year is closed.  Families who put in for a track change will be notified at a later date. State class size decisions and house bill 13 are impacting school decisions for the upcoming school year.
