    Going From School

    • This August, you will receive an email prompting you to fill out our K-2 Transporation Form.  This is an online form that asks for information about where your child is going after school each day.  This information is very important and will be given to your child's classroom teacher.  
    • This form will indicate how your child is going home each day of the week.


    If you are on campus waiting to pick up your child, please stay outside the kindergarten playground until teachers bring their students to the gate.


    Please do not park in the pick up lane during carpool time.
