Welcome GREAT Grizzly Families!

GREAT Grizzlies...
Go Above and Beyond
Are Ready to Learn
Show Empathy for Others
Strive for High Academic Achievement
Are Team players!

Next GREAT Grizzly Assembly will be held Friday, September 30th! We will recognize students who exemplify "Ready to Learn" and the Lunch with the Principals for our growth mindset award.

Every Monday will be a minimum day and school will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. Regular dismissal time, Tuesday through Friday, is 2:45 p.m.

Drop-off Procedures and Times -- students should arrive at school no earlier than 7:45 a.m. Each morning at 7:45 a.m. we will open the gate north of the office building. At 8:13 a.m. when the school bell rings, students should find their classroom number painted on the hard court concrete and wait there until their teacher arrives.

Student Safety during Drop-off and Pick-up – Safety is always our first concern and we MUST work together to ensure safe passage. The yellow curb immediately in front of the school is the ONLY place students may exit your vehicle. Continue to move forward along the yellow curb until the line of cars has come to a complete stop before allowing your child to exit or enter your car.

Please allow for some extra time and bring your patience during this typically high traffic, and high student density time. NOTE – the bus turn around will be blocked off and is not a location for student drop-off or pick-up; however, it may be open for school events—Awards assemblies, etc.

As always, I hope that the above information is helpful to start off another successful school year!
