New signs being installedNEW SIGNAGE AROUND THE DISTRICT

You may notice some new signs being installed around our district. These new signs are meant to reinforce to district visitors that our grounds and facilities are closed to the general public when school is in session. This is not a new policy (9150 - SCHOOL VISITORS), however, we are stepping up our enforcement of these rules to help ensure the safety of students and staff. Anyone that has school related business during published school hours, is welcome to enter through each building's main entrance and check in as a visitor.

This same School Visitor Policy also addresses animals on our school grounds: “Except as set forth in District policy, canines brought on the premises by law enforcement personnel for law enforcement purposes, or in the case of "service animals" required for use by a person with a disability, no other animals may be on school premises at any time.”


Mr. Peace Assembly

We are having an assembly with Mr. Peace on May 15th. If you would like to opt your child out of this assembly, please fill out the form:

 Mr. Peace Diversity


Did you miss Mr. Peace’s Cyberbullying & Social Media Parent Presentation? He did an excellent job relaying a LOT of information. Even if you were there, you may wish to go through some of the materials at a more leisurely pace! Mr. Peace was kind enough to share a Google folder with all of his presentations, resources and videos from the evening.
