 New Identity Management System

 We are pleased to introduce a new Identity Management System in our school beginning Monday, March 24.  We are now asking all parents, visitors and volunteers to please have a photo identification available for our new sign in system when they sign in at the front office or check out a student. We will not be able to allow anyone to access the school or sign out a student early without proper identification. Please keep this change in mind as you plan visits to our building. Thank you for your support as we continue to provide a safe learning environment for our students.
