Current Events

8/23/21: Thank you for your patience as we stopped parent pick up and biker/walkers to let the lightning pass. For your information, when lightning is within 2 miles of the school, we will stop or delay dismissal until it passes. I will always communicate a delay via text message and hopefully you received a couple from me this afternoon. If you did not, please be sure you have opted in for text messaging through the district website. 

A couple of important reminders:

  • If your child is not feeling well (cough, sore throat, fever, vomiting, diarrhea), please keep them home. This courtesy helps us to keep all students and staff healthy and safe.
  • If you are awaiting COVID test results for anyone in your family, please do not send your children to school until you have the results. This will eliminate possible close contacts for other students.
  • We are starting to receive notice of positive cases for our students due to sleep-overs, birthday parties and the like. Just a reminder to be careful with large groups. We want all of our children to be safe and healthy. 

Friday is school pictures for all students and staff! In your child’s first day of school folder, the white Charger folder, you received the order information for the pictures. You can fill out the paper order form and send a check/cash or you can order online at using access code C547840. If you choose the online option, write the confirmation code on the form and send that in with your child.

  • Reminder- our water fountains are only used as bottle fillers for the health and safety of children. Please remember to send your child with a water bottle every day. For our littles, please put their names on them to help!

Middle School

Dear Charger families,

Reminder! Early release at 1:45 Wednesday! Set your alarm. 

Elementary parent pick up: Thank you for having your signs! It is so helpful. As a reminder, please leave the sign in your windshield until you have your child in the car. This little thing is so helpful to our staff that are working the red lot. Thank you. 

School Supplies

Middle school families: Please be sure that your child leaves home in the morning following the outlined dress code that has been sent home. I will attach another copy for you to this email. Specifically this week, we have spoken to students regarding the appropriate length of shorts and having shoes with backs on them. We appreciate your support with this!
