BCBS Grant Update:  Mastercraft was awarded the winning bid for construction of our new health and wellness building.  Their bid also includes a larger building that was anticipated.  Construciton will begin soon.  If you notice pink flags placed in the area where the outdoor classroom was, those mark where our walking track will be located. Excavation and pouring of asphalt will occur down there  soon.

Research indicates that poor school attendance is a contributing factor to reduced reading proficiency. Students that are absent should submit a parent excuse letter or a doctor’s excuse within two days of returning to school.  A parent letter can be downloaded from the counselor page.

Students can now purchase fresh produce, yogurt, and other healthy snack options in the concession stand during their afternoon break.
