We receive several calls during the day from parents who ask "did you just call me?".  Please check your voicemail before calling the school.  Most often it is your child wanting something or to ask you a question.  If anyone from the office calls you, they will leave a message.  Thank you for your compliance.

Urgent Print this articleParking - Please Read
Click for larger image

Dear Families,

Please refrain from parking alongside Country Club Drive and Kowal Drive when picking up students at dismissal. This recent practice has caused a great deal of frustration with residents as it has created an unsafe environment for homeowners and secondary students that are being dismissed from buses.

I realize that the newly adopted parking lot procedures have not expedited a faster pick up time. However, it has secured the safety of students. The safety of students is our priority and I appreciate your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Donna Biggs, Principal
