Low Meal Balance Notices - emails will be sent to anyone who has a balance of $5.00 or less in their student's meal account.  Please keep your child's account balance positive.  You can pay on accounts using check or cash or you can make payments online using the parent portal.  You can send one payment to school that will be equally divided between all your students unless you specify exactly how you want the deposit divided.  If you have any questions please contact the school office.

Student Drop off and Pick up - please do not park in the bus lane at any time.  The bus lane is the entire curb along the west side of the school.  Please park on the south side of the school or if there are spots in the parking lot.  Please walk your child to the building.  We will have school personnel available to assist children getting off the buses.  After school please wait for the teachers to dismiss the students to you.  This will take place right outside the west doors.  All classes exit through these doors at the end of the day.  Do not attempt to use any other door to enter the school at any time during the school day.  All doors are locked and there is a buzzer system set up at our main door for entry if anyone needs to come in during the school day.
