  • Notice Regarding Deliveries to Students

    This year you will see a change in our office policy regarding deliveries to students. In order to minimize the disruptions to instruction, we are restricting deliveries for students to items that are essential to the educational process.  Therefore, classes will not be interrupted for delivery of items.   Flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc. will not be accepted from businesses for delivery.  Restaurant deliveries are also not allowed.  

    Parents will need to wait for their student to be called to the office between classes to receive ANY item that has been brought for them by a parent or family member, including, but not limited to lunch money, homework, or PE clothing.  

    The front office will NOT be responsible for delivering items to s
    tudents.  We appreciate your understanding as we make this change for safety and fidelity to instruction. Thank you

  • ParentVue
     
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
