• Important Notice


      Dear Parents,


      If you have been listening to the weather forecast for tomorrow you know that they are saying that Friday has the potential for -25 to -30 wind chills.  The National Weather Services issues a WARNING when it reaches -25 degrees. At this temperature exposed skin can get frostbite in 10 minutes. There is a possibility that school will be closed tomorrow due to the extreme temperatures.


      Please know that if school is closed on Friday we will have school on Thursday, February 19th.


      If school is open tomorrow, it will still be very cold outside.  Please remember to send your child to school dressed for the weather – winter coat, gloves/mittens, and a hat. Covering exposed skin as much as possible should be the goal. 


      Thank you for your continued support.  If you have any questions, please call our office at 926-1740.

    The portal can be accessed by parents of enrolled students.  Parents will see all children in their household, or students that are related by a guardian flagged relationship.  Students will also be given access to the Portal, but they will only be able to access their own information.   Parents and students will be able to view family demographics, attendance, grades, schedules and more.

     ALL parents must receive an activation code to use the parent portal.   To receive a code simply click on the link to guide you back to our homepage to fill out a simple form...

    Students do NOT need an activation code to see their own information.   Students for the first log-on use your student number (can be found on your report card) and the password is the student's Birthday in mmddyy format.
