Making Headlines

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. Keep your eye on this page for important announcements and to help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.


We are still requiring students and staff to wear masks at school. Students may remove masks when in classrooms, out at recess, or eating. Please remember to send your child to school with their mask. Bus riders must also wear a mask. Please help us keep students safe.
