This is to provide for social distancing and efficient arrivals and dismissals. Due to the social distancing regulations, students must only ride their assigned bus. Students will not be allowed to ride a different bus to go home with a friend/family member.

Officer STEPHANIE CLARK, School Resource Officer
Officer Clark is here to support our students and staff on a daily basis.
We separate school discipline from criminal activity. If administration determines that an offense could be criminal it is then turned over to Officer Clark for investigation. School consequences still apply.
TIPS TO HELP YOUR STUDENT HAVE A GREAT YEAR:
Monitor your student’s cell phone/game time use
Review the school’s School Wide Expectations- Lancer Matrix
Review with your student the Code of Conduct
Don’t make excuses for poor choices- help your child learn from them.
