Parents, please check your child’s Harmony Account so you know what their lunch balance is at all times.

CONCESSIONS:  After school concessions are every day after school.  There will be Gatorade, chips, candy bars for sale.  Please do not send large bills with your child.  We do not have a lot of change.  If we don’t have change, then your child won’t be able to purchase their snack.


Parents or guardians enter their phone numbers, address, emergency contacts, etc. when registering your child(ren) for school every year.  This is information that is very important.  You should be looking at that and, if necessary, be changing it.  If you move to a different address-you should change it in Harmony.  If you get a new phone number-you should change it in Harmony.  If you want to change your emergency contacts-you should change it in Harmony.  If there are old contacts that are no longer used-you should change it in Harmony. These records need to be kept current. We will not be able to contact you in an emergency situation if our records are not accurate.  Please call the school office if you need assistance.


We respectfully ask that all after school instructions for where your child needs to go be done before they leave home in the morning.  A note for your child’s teacher is the easiest.  Your child cannot get on a bus other than their regular scheduled bus unless they have a note from their parent stating they have your permission.  IF you have to call the office, please do so before 2pm.

Please remember: Students are not to stay in the building after school for any reason unless supervised by a coach or designated adult.
