    To help ensure the health and safety of all our students and staff, we ask that parents please consider
    funding their student’s meal account online through MySchoolBucks.

    meal account online or with the mobile app. With MySchoolBucks you’ll also be able to view cafeteria
    purchases, check your student’s balance, and receive low balance alerts.

    If you need assistance with your account, you can find helpful how-to videos and answers to commonly
    asked questions by visiting myschoolbucks.com. Or, you can contact MySchoolBucks directly by logging

  • Request for New Bus Stop or Location Change

    If you are requesting a bus stop for your child that is different than the one assigned to your home address, please utilize this form and turn it into your school for processing. 

    Please understand that processing may take up to three to five days. During the beginning of the school year, routing for students riding the bus to and from the bus stop associated with the home address on file takes priority.

    Additional stop/change requests will be handled as quickly as we are able to do so. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Arrival and Dismissal

    We are asking that in the parent pickup/dropoff loop:

    - Please refrain from using cell phones.  Please hang up the phone prior to entering the area where students are exiting vehicles.  

    -If your child exits from the passenger side of the vehicle, please have them cross IN FRONT OF YOUR VEHICLE to make sure your child clears your vehicle before moving.

    - Encourage student independence in buckling and unbuckling, especially for preschool and Kindergarten.

    -If you are picking up your child, please keep your eyes forward watching the vehicle in front of you and not the children waiting for the vehicles.  We have had several close calls with fender benders.

    -As we get to learn about your children and vehicle, please have your yellow placard up until your child is in your vehicle.  This helps to expedite the process.
