Dear parents and guardians:

While I do not intend for this summer to end too quickly, the new school year will soon be here. Now is the time for teachers, students and parents to make preparations that will be the start of a successful school year.

As a reminder, our first day of school for students is Friday, September 5. Middle school students will arrive at 7:55 a.m. and be dismissed at 2:49 p.m. Elementary school students will begin their day at 8:40 a.m. and be dismissed at 3:34 p.m. More information regarding the opening of the 2014 -2015 school year can be found below.

For the past couple of weeks the district voicemail has not been functioning. I apologize if you have been frustrated trying to contact the district. Until the system is back on line, please email us with your concerns or questions.  

I am looking forward to the first day of the new school year and greeting our students upon their return. On their first day, they are sure to bring many smiles, along with the inevitable nervousness that is associated with new challenges. Please be assured that their teachers, administrators and entire district staff will do everything possible to make this academic year a fulfilling and enjoyable learning experience.
