November Calendar

School is not in session on November 7, 10, and 22-24.


ID Required

If you come to school to pick up your child and we don’t know you because you have never picked up your child before or do it rarely, we will ask you for ID.


If you come to school to volunteer in your child’s classroom, you must have an ID to use the district’s sign in platform.


Carpool AM Drop Off

At 9:10 each morning, carpool staff re-enter the building to support classrooms and begin the day.  If you arrive to drop off your child between 9:10 and 9:15, your child can enter the building since they are not late, but there will not be adults outside to support.  Please try to plan your arrival before 9:10 when possible.


Kindergarten Registration is now underway for 2023-2024.
