Everybody Cut Footloose!
Recess & Inclement Weather Info:
It is that time of year again...please make sure your child is prepared for outdoor recess. We continue to go outside even when the "feels like" temperature is 25*. Also, make sure your child keeps track of their coats and gloves. Writing a name inside jackets is a great idea. Our lost and found is FULL!
With the approach of winter also comes the possibility of inclement weather, dangerous road conditions, and the need to consider school cancellations and early dismissals. Click HERE HERE for more information.
New Texting System:
Our school district currently utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver messages via email and voice. We will begin to utilize the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages with important information about events, school closing and safety alerts.

You can participate in this service by sending a text message of "Y" or "Yes" to our school district's short code number, 67587. You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with "Stop."
