Principal's Weekly Message- October 21, 2022

Campus Updates & Reminders:

Safety Week has wrapped up and we are so proud of our students and staff! If you have never seen close to 600 people try to evacuate in an orderly fashion, it is quite the undertaking. Students took every drill seriously and responded to the direction of their teachers beautifully.

There have been some questions about the upcoming Red Ribbon Week. Our main focus as a campus is encouraging students to make healthy choices for their lives. Teachers will adapt this messaging to be accessible and appropriate for each grade level. For more information and resources for continuing this conversation at home with your child, visit
