  • No students or community members are allowed on campus or in the building for any reason, with the exception of the meal pick-up program from 10:30-12:30 in the back of the school. This includes sports facilities and the weight room until further notice.

  • STUDENTS: Check your teachers' webpages and Google Classrooms frequently for instructional work
  • PARENTS: Check the Parent Resources section above for handouts on how to access Student Progress Center and Google Classroom information. Paper copies of review packets will be made available for pickup and drop off at the school, but we encourage you to use the digital assignments as much as you can.
