School Operations updates: Please click here to read news and updates on technology, school nutrition, and arrival/dismissal.
Lost & Found: Please come to the lobby or send your child to the front office to claim their lost & found items. Unclaimed items will be donated after the last day of school. Please remember to write your child's full name in their clothing and lunch bags, water bottles. We are doing our best to reunite items with students!
Volunteer HERE to help with the lost and found maintenance!
Early Dismissal: Please do not call in advance for your child to be waiting at the front for early dismissal.  This leads to missed instructional time, and an additional burden on our front office. Early dismissal ends at 2:30pm. Please bring an photo ID if you are checking a student out for early dismissal.
Uniform Reminders:  Although we understand that students want to be comfortable, t-shirts, jeans, and leggings are not included in our uniform guidelines. Please check in with your student to make sure that they are in dress code each day. 
Food delivery: Deliveries to students by services like DoorDash, Uber Eats or PostMates is not permitted. If your student forgets to pack lunch, they may purchase school lunch or a parent/guardian may deliver it to the front office.
Schoology: You should have received your Parent Access Code and instructions for logging in to Schoology. Please contact your student’s advisor if you have any questions OR if you do not receive an email.
