Events This Week:

6th Grade Families: We are excited to welcome our 6th grade students to campus on Monday for a team building activity from 9-11am. Ms. Harrington, 6th grade assistant principal, has been communicating the details of the morning. It is shaping up to be a great event! Students are reminded to wear their face masks covering their nose, mouth and chin. A water bottle is encouraged as the water fountains are only used as “refilling stations”. Please keep your 6th grader home if he or she is not feeling well or has been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID19.

Due to changes in district safety protocols, we have adjusted the 6th grade student and parent orientation on Friday, shifting to a virtual event. Please see the 6th Grade Stampede on our website or Ms. Harrington’s email from Friday, August 13th, for the details.


7th and 8th Grade Families: Schedules will be available for pick up on Friday for all 7th and 8th grade students at the front entrance to the building. The 8th grade window is from 8-9:30 and 7th grade window is from 10-11:30. The PTA will also be on campus for those who need to pick up or purchase spirit wear. 


Virtual Academy Families: Students enrolled in Virtual Academy will have supply and schedule pick up on Friday as well. This will also include Chromebooks for those who are scheduled to receive a device. Please refer to the email Mr. Kimbro sent with details. For questions, please contact
