Important Information

  • Homework

    We offer homework time every day except Fridays. We encourage students to do their work and assist in any way that we can.  Unfortunately, we do not have the staff to offer individual tutoring.  


    Please park at the back of the lunchroom next to the dumpster and go through the single gate. Follow the sidewalk until you have reach the first glass door. That will be the door you will enter to pick up your child.

    For security purposes, this door may be locked at times so please knock and an adult will let you in. You will then enter Mrs. Bass's office to sign out your child.
