School Supply Kits

We are still accepting orders for prepackaged school supply kits for the upcoming school year - deadline is July 1st

To order, please use the following link: Back to School Supply Kits

Electronic Device Use Policy

Many students are bringing electronic devices to school, such as I-Watches and/or I-Phones.  Use of these devices during school hours is strongly discouraged:  texting and/or calling with parents becomes disruptive to the learning environment. These devices should be kept in backpacks for use during non-school hours.  Thank you for your help with this!
