    Safety Reminder:

    Please remember it is against the law to be driving and talking on your cell phone within the posted school

    zone times. Therefore, for the safety of our students and staff, when driving your car in our drives for arrival

    and dismissal, please refrain from using your cell phone.

    Attendance Reminder:

    Our students are learning academics as well as habits now that will influence their future schooling and

    adulthood. Please remember that every minute in the school day counts and our students miss important

    information and instructional time when they arrive late to school or when checked out before the end of the

    school day.
