Student Drop-Off

Students should be dropped off in the carline off of Shankland Ave. on the south side of the school. Walkers should use the front gate near the office at all times. Students arriving at school after 7:45 need to come in through the front gate and sign in at the office. No one should be dropped off in the horseshoe or near the gate where buses are coming in, nor should they use the side gate between the music room and cafeteria. Thank you for your cooperation.

Summer Office Hours

Our office will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day during the months of June and July. If you have questions concerning registration or next school year, please call our office at 824-1235.
