  • It is critical that your child’s teacher knows his/her dismissal plan each day.  Please notify the teacher of any changes in dismissal routine.

  • Please do not drop your child off prior to 7:40 as we do not have staff supervision until 7:40.

  • For student drop off and pick up, please follow staff directions at all times for safety.  Do not drive through the bus loop.  All car traffic must stay on Victor Street.

  • For safety, foot traffic around the school must always use sidewalks & crosswalks. Please use the walkway along Ennell & Victor Street and do not cut through the driveway.

  • Do not park and leave your car at any of our entrances and please do not block private driveways.

  • Dogs (PETS) should NOT BE BROUGHT onto the school campus due to student allergy and safety concerns.

  • If your child is sick, please call the office so that we can determine if their absence can be marked as excused.

  • Please look out for an invitation to join Class DOJO from your child’s teacher.  We use this regularly to communicate important information, so please connect and check it regularly.

  • School supply lists will be posted on Class DOJO shortly.

  • Teacher letters will go out via Class DOJO this year and will be shared closer to the start of school.


We are looking forward to a fun and successful school year!  Please reach out if you have any questions or needs.
