OTHER Announcements


  • We have moved the Math Help Session tutoring signups to an online version.

Here is the link:


  • Parents, We have a safety concern that I need your help please.  If you need to pick up your child in the front of school at dismissal, you NEED to park your vehicle on the right-hand side (near the football field) and walk up to get them near Door 35.  Students should NEVER walk through the traffic.  It is very dangerous!  There is a crosswalk that can be used so please don’t walk between the buses.  NO VEHICLES SHOULD BE DIRECTLY BEHIND THE BUSES WAITING FOR THE STUDENT TO COME OUT AND GET INTO THE CAR.  IT IS A SAFETY CONCERN AND YOU ARE BLOCKING OUR 46 BUSES.  I appreciate you keeping everyone safe.  THANK YOU!


  • Effective immediately, there is a $2.00 charge for any reprints of the Z-Pass (Bus Pass).  These will be used again next school year.  Students will need to hang onto their pass for the 22-23 school year.


  • Students, just a reminder that you should be scanning your bus pass as you get on and off of your bus.  This is helpful in an emergency situation for us to know who is on the bus.  Thank you

  • The deadline to order your yearbook will be here before you know it! Online sales end May 20. Go to www.yearbookforever.com to reserve your copy!
