By clicking on parent links, you can find teacher sites.  Most teachers have sent home information with their sites,

emails, and phone numbers.  School email addresses are the staff member’s first name, . lastname.  That’s the first name,

a period, and then the last name without spaces.   

Please note that per district policy, parents are not allowed on the playground this year.  Parents can still

come to have lunch in the cafeteria with their children.


When parents are picking up students at the end of school, they should not go in the buildings. 

Kindergarten parents, who sign in, can pick up their students in front of the Kindergarten /First Grade building.
