Families are advised that Bus Registration for the 2018-19 school year will run from May 1st through June 30th, 2018. In order to ride a district school bus, all new and returning riders must complete a registration form each year.

STUDENT DROP OFF - PICK UP & VISITOR PARKING
Students are encouraged to walk to school. When it is necessary to drop off and pick up your child please enter the parking lot off Stave Lake Road and proceed past the bus loop to the rear parking lot, between the field and the track. Students may be safely dropped off beside the school. There is also plenty of parking in the rear lot for visitors. There are also a few marked visitor parking spaces in front of the main entrance. Most other parking spaces in the front of the school and on the west side of the school are assigned as staff parking. The parking lot on the east side of the school is for the University. We ask for your cooperation in respecting the designated parking spaces and the “No stopping at any time” sign in front of our main entrance. This allows complete and safe access to permitted parking spaces and spaces for people with disabilities.
School closures will be published on the school district's website. Click on the link "Unscheduled Closures" located at the bottom of the right, green column located on this page.
