New Improvements

We are upgrading to new drinking fountains with a water bottle filling station! This complete cooler and bottle filling station delivers a clean, cool and quick water bottle fill.

Please make sure that your student has a water bottle each day at school. We are happy to be able to offer this new service to our students!
