• Yearbook message from Lifetouch Yearbooks

    “When will I get my yearbook?”

    This is a question that has been showing up in our inbox often over the last few days.  When yearbooks arrive, you WILL be notified with distribution plans!

    Our yearbook factory, like many businesses, was deemed nonessential and was closed for over a month and a half.  Their staff is working VERY hard to get yearbooks to schools and students as fast as possible.  We are currently working with administration to develop a distribution plan and date that meets the health and safety requirements.  When our distribution plans are finalized and the books arrive - all students, parents, and guardians will be notified via the Aeries communication system.  We thank you for your patience and understanding as we are still taking things one day at a time.

    All in all, you WILL get your yearbook, SOON :)

    We will offer meals on Monday 4/20, and Wednesday 4/22 from 10:30 to 12:30.  These meals will be a 6 day set up with food that will need to be heated at home.  After which a 6 day meal plan will be offered every Wednesday between the hours of 10:30 – 12:30.

    Please come to the school's bus circle for pick up.

Campus Safety

  • Campus Safety

    Please abide by the car line procedures and do not pick up/drop off your child on the side street (79th St). This is a safety concern as there is a high rate of traffic on this street during arrival/dismissal times.  Additionally the street has been marked with no parking signs and we want to respect our neighbors in the surrounding community.


    *Students are only permitted on campus 30 minutes before (9:00 a.m.) and 30 minutes after (4:30 p.m.) School unless they are involved with a school sanctioned event.  There has been an increase in students arriving extremely early and being picked up late outside school hours.  This poses a safety concern as our Teachers/Staff are not on duty to supervise.  Please assist us in abiding by this request.
