Parents: Please do not drop off students on Dike Road or any of the subdivision streets. 

For the safety of your student, please use the approved drop-off area in the parking lot by the Cafeteria.
U-Turns and stopping to drop off students on Dike Road are dangerous traffic violations and could result in a traffic citation.

New Attendance Policy: Effective immediately phone calls to the school will not be honored for the early release of students. Parents/guardians requesting the early release of their student from school prior to the end of the school day will need to do one of the following:

1) You will need to personally come to the administration office to sign out and pick up your student. Valid identification will be requested such as state ID or driver's license to confirm your identity before student will be released to you.

2) If you are unable to come in to sign out and pick up your student then a signed note from you indicating the date and time of the requested early release will need to be submitted to the front office. A contact number needs to be provided no later than the morning the day before the requested early release date to confirm your request. The contact number needs to be one that is currently on file and part of your student's school record.
