Office News

Please take the School Climate Survey for Parents and Caregivers.The survey is open from February 27 to March 31, 2023. You can find the survey by visiting the link below:

Crosswalk Safety has recently become an issue. Parents need to observe the same safety precautions as the students when using the crosswalks, please wait for the adult with the sign to stop traffic before you cross. And, drivers need to be watchful when approaching either of the crosswalks for pedestrians.


Minimum days are approaching fast!  Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, March 17th through Friday, March 24th.  There is no change for Kindergarten or TK.  Grades 1-3 will be dismissed at 12:10PM and grades 4-6 will be dismissed at 12:24PM.  Students may have lunch in the cafeteria, but must be picked up, or go to their on-site program as soon as they are done.


NEW WAY TO REPORT ATTENDANCE!  You can now go to our website, and report your student’s absence.  Look for the “hand” on the homescreen and complete the form, it is automatically sent to the attendance desk. You can also still leave a message on our 24 hour attendance line at 916-395-4595, press1, send an email to, or send a note with your student upon return.


Just a reminder……if your student is late, or misses school, due to a doctor/dentist appointment please be sure to ask for a note, it will not count as a tardy or absence on their attendance record!


Next week is the end of our ”On Time” ticket raffle!  It’s the last chance for student’s to get their names entered in the drawing for the Game Truck.  

Please have your student arrive before 8:00 AM.
