There was a 3-hr. early dismissal due to a water outage this morning. The Administration and staff would like to thank all our students for their maturity and patience in this unusual situation. We appreciate being able to focus on our communication with PWC, the Superintendent, maintenance crews and other agencies (child nutrition and transportation) so we could clearly identify the problem and communicate the solutions to you. There are a lot of moving parts in a situation like today. We appreciate all the students whose good behavior helped support our efforts to get everyone fed and home safely. We thank you!

The PTO would like to thank all of the parents and students that came out to last night’s spirit night at Freddy’s. We want to congratulate the 3 classes that had the highest attendance, 6th grade – Ms. Grace, 7th grade – Ms. Sandoval and 8th grade – Ms Witty!  Each classroom will receive a special treat in the upcoming week.

If your child received a notification of missing shot records or vaccinations, please remember to provide your documentation no later than Tuesday September 24th.

We expect Progress reports go home on the 23rd. Most teacher’s will require make-up work and any missing assignments be turned in this week.  This would be a good weekend to follow-up with your child and make sure they turn in all missing assignments or incomplete work.
