Students are tardy at 7:55.  If you are walking in the door at 7:55, you are tardy.  A parent must sign all students in that are tardy.

At this point, all non-bus riding students should be dropped off through carline.  No one should be walking their students into the building or letting them out in the parking lot.  The carline is the absolute safest way to get your child into the school.  (Remember that before school care and safety patrol have designated drop off points)

All students should be picked up by 3:20.  Drop-ins for afterschool care are not permitted this year.  Please make prior arrangements if you will not be able to get here by 3:20. 

You are welcome to eat lunch with your student twice a month.  Only persons listed as a contact for the student will be allowed to attend lunch.  You must have a picture I.D. to obtain a pass from the reception desk when you come.

Starting Tuesday, September 4, we will be selling ice cream every day in the lunchroom for all grades.  The cost is .75.  This is an additional charge as an a la carte item.  Students cannot purchase ice cream if they have outstanding charges.  Also, students on Free Lunch will have to have money on their account to purchase a la carte items. We will leave it up to the parent’s judgment to have conversations with their child about eating lunch first before eating ice cream.

The Parent Portal is now open for parents to view student information in INOW/Chalkable.  If you forgot your password from last year and need it to be reset, please email  If you are new to our school, we will send home your access codes on Tuesday, September 4.

Through the parent portal, you can view attendance, discipline, grades(3rd – 5th) and see notes from us.

Discovery Club begins on Tuesday, September 18.  You must fill out an application and they will let you know if you will be a part of the program this year.  Space is limited.

Grandparent Day Lunch – Parents we sent home forms for you to complete if a Grandparent will be attending lunch with your child on their designated day.  Those are due on September 7.   Please make sure your child has enough money on their account to cover their grandparent if you are paying for their meal.  Grandparents may shop with the student at the book fair immediately following lunch.
