No School Monday

Please note that there will be no school, EDP, or band on Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. All classes and EDP will resume Tuesday.

Important Schedule Change

There will be no school on Thursday, February 15 (previously an early dismissal day) so that we can provide a full day for Parent/Teacher Conferences. We hope that this new schedule will allow all families the opportunity to meet with teachers. School will resume Tuesday, February 20, after the President’s Day break.

Conferences will be held in-person that Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. The sign-up form will be available later this month.

Registration Now Open!
