Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

School Closure and COVID-19 Information

The health and safety of our students, staff, and families are extremely important to us. It’s important for parents and guardians to have the latest health and safety procedures and information regarding coronavirus disease known as COVID-19.  

Things are changing rapidly, and many school districts have decided to recommend school closures to their governing boards. Our school district will close schools from Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 10.

The district made this decision after reviewing recommendations by the department of health services, our governor, and the superintendent of public instruction. Ultimately, we made the decision in the best interest of our students, families, and staff.  

School district personnel will be present at our bus stops on Monday, March 16 to ensure that parents and students are aware that school is cancelled. If you see school personnel at bus stops, please be aware that we will be out in force to ensure that our students are not left at stops unattended. All school personnel will be wearing either shirts with district logos or their identification badges. 

Our food service department has created a plan to provide breakfast and lunch to our students.  Meals will be delivered by our transportation department. Our transportation department has come up with a schedule of delivering breakfast and lunch at bus stops. See below for that schedule.  

Please review the following documents for complete information on our district plans.

Welcome to Our New Website!

We are pleased to welcome you to our new and improved, responsive (mobile friendly) website. We are grateful to the many district and school staff members who worked together to envision a website that reflects how much we care about our students. Our partnership with School Webmasters has made our vision a reality. Working with School Webmasters also helps us keep our websites ADA compliant for those with disabilities. We hope you’ll check back in with us often!

Study Tips for Your School Child

Do you find it hard to get your son or daughter to study? Would his or her grades improve if they had better study skills and resources? If you answered yes to either question, we have some helpful tips for you.

GreatSchools.org  offers tips to help your child prepare for a successful study session. Simple tips such as how to organize a study space, plan time to study, and having the proper study materials can go a long way toward helping your child be successful. For more detailed information about how to help your child develop and practice good study habits, please visit GreatSchools.org.

If you prefer a hands-on approach to help your child, then you may want to refresh your memory on the topics your son or daughter is learning. A good place to start is Internet Public Library, which has a wealth of information and research materials you and your teen need to advance learning, such as arts and crafts, nutrition information, and sports.

For the younger child, studying in the traditional way might not be working. Take a look at Fun Brain for an interactive approach to studying. Don't let the fact that it is full of games discourage you from letting your child go there. Educational games engage your child while reinforcing basic skills in math, reading, science, and more. Even by playing games kids learn—and any kind of learning is good!
