Combined, the two schools gathered more than 8,500 items for the food pantries, to be distributed to families in need this holiday season.

Winter is Here! Time to Talk Weather-Related School Closings

Winter’s icy breath has come early this year.  At least we are not alone, for most of the country is unseasonably cold right now.  Thank you Mother Nature!  Nobody wishes a repeat of last winter, but Superintendent Ginopolis and her team recognize there will probably be at least a few days of missed school due to inclement weather.  The district also knows the decision to open or close the district in such situations has a big impact on families.  Our top priority when making such choices is the safety of our students and staff.  A number of factors are considered when making the decision to close our schools due to the weather conditions.  Click Here


Congratulations to all our Honor Roll Q1 students!
