Student Drop Off / Pick Up - Please use the west parking lot for student drop offs and pickups. This has a paved path and crosswalk ensuring the safest way for students to get through the bus zone. Thank you for your cooperation.
Coyote Kitchen We had our first day with our sponsored lunch program for our elementary aged students. While it went as smooth as it could be, we would like to remind parents that students will need snacks to supplement. Every student has a different appetite, and as we learn to manage portion sizes for students, we need to let parents know that students will be receiving one portion for lunch. Jr/Sr High students have been steadily using our coyote kitchen as well and can continue to purchase lunch specials, wraps, soups and more. Check out our website for the current menu.
School Picture Day - Our school picture day will be on Thursday September 28. Retake day is scheduled for Monday October 16. Students who are in M/W Kindergarten classes will have their pictures taken on that day.
