  • What messages are appropriate to interrupt my child's class for?

Messages to your child during school hours should only be for emergencies. Please try to have after school arrangements made in advance of the school day.

Please send a note and have your child bring it directly to the Main Office. This allows the office time to review your child's schedule for that specific day, and have him or her ready for dismissal in a timely manner.

  • Why do I need a CORI form?

If you wish to volunteer in our school, you will need to fill out a CORI form.

Please see the Volunteering Requirements page for more info.

Calls from the Main Office or nurse will have a message. Since classrooms are equipped with telephones, please check with your child after school to find out if they called.

No. The parking in front of the school off Village Street is open for only parents and visitors until 2:00 pm.

Pease remember the rule for the pick up circle so we can continue to allow students to exit safely.

  • How do I find out about events in the community?
The district promotes a “green” approach for the distribution of community flyers and announcements. Instead of flyers sent home in the weekly “backpack,” approved community events and/or sign-ups are posted on a web page entitled Virtual Backpack. You'll find its link to the right or in the 'Quick Links' top menu. Please review this site each week as new approvals for flyers are posted as they are received.
