How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTO at your school and make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes

May my child take an animal to school?

For the safety and health of our students, we prohibit animals (pets) on school grounds during school hours or whenever students are present, unless they are specifically for class purposes. The school administration must approve any animal brought to school. Please do not bring leashed dogs or other pets on campus.

We do permit trained service animals accompanying individuals with disabilities in accordance with board policy BP/AR 6163.2.

Will my child have access to the internet while at school?

Students can access the internet for homework and school-related research from our computer lab, library, and classrooms while under the supervision of qualified school personnel. We require all students to abide by our Acceptable Use Policy. We expect our students to behave responsibly on school computer networks. Please see the Technology page for more information.
