Breakfast will be served to scholars each morning beginning at 8:30 am.  Grades 1-3 will be served breakfast in the cafeteria, while scholars in grades 4-8 will be served breakfast in the classroom. Please ensure your scholars are on time each day to receive breakfast. It is the most important meal of the day!

Inclement Weather Admittance

In the case of inclement weather, students will be admitted to school indoors. Students in grades K-4 will be met by their teachers in the cafeteria, while grades 5-8 will meet in the auditorium.


No More Than 8 to be great.

We are asking Parents and Scholars to Rise to the Challenge of coming to school everyday on time. If scholars must miss school, we challenge you to keep your absences under “8” absences for the school year. When scholars are absent more than 8 days, learning is impacted! Scholars enter the “Warning Zone” for academic achievement. This means your child is approaching being in danger of failing. Attend our parent meetings for more information.
