NEW Instant Alert System

On January 1, 2021, we are implementing a NEW Instant Alert System. It is important to note that your information will NOT automatically be loaded into the system.  If you want to receive communication, you must register for the alerts

Your online profile will enable you to: input your personal contact information; add contact information of other caretakers of your children, such as a grandparent or neighbor; select how you would like to receive the communication. (ie. text, call, email).  Your email address MUST match the email entered in Oneview (If you have not completed your student registration in Oneview, please do so first and then register for Instant Alert.)

FREE Breakfast/Lunch

BREAKFAST and LUNCH for the remainder of the school year 2020-2021 are FREE thanks to a grant received from United States Department of Agriculture.

We have made it to the fourth quarter!  We are now on the home-stretch, and that means our students get to show us what they have learned.  We will begin our state assessments this month on April 21 & 22 with English Language Arts.  Our Math assessment will be April 28 & 29, and we will end with our Science assessment on May 5 & 6.
