Message to students: Smoke and fire alarms and other emergency systems are vital for the safe operations of schools and must not be tampered with. Smoking/vaping interferes with the operation of our fire alarms. No student shall interfere with or damage any part of a fire alarm, fire detection, smoke detection, fire extinguishing system, or emergency escape system. This includes smoking/vaping. False fire alarms are Level 2 offenses and may result in suspensions.



Do not drop off or pick up students in the bus parking lot, the main student parking lot, or along Dixon Drive.  This is a significant safety hazard.  Use the carpool lane only.


Live Bus Updates – Message from Transportation

Parents, Staff and Students can utilize this tool to see if a bus route is running LATE or has NO DRIVER AVAILABLE.  We are continuing to have Bus Driver shortages in Transportation and is a great tool to answer a lot of bus questions.  As always when we know a bus route will be NOT BE COVERED/NO DRIVER AVAILABLE we will communicate this as soon as we can.
