Back to school information

The first day of school, Tuesday, 6-SEPT-16, will be a half day of school starting at 7:20am and ending at 10:30am. Because this day will serve as an orientation day, the following forms must be completed prior to the first day of school:

  • Emergency Cards (2)
  • Title I Parent/Student/Teacher/Principal Compact
  • Concussion Form

A packet, which will include these forms, will be mailed in August. You may also download the PDF.
