Does your school offer breakfast and lunch?

We operate an excellent nutrition program at each campus. Our cafeterias serve breakfast and lunch every school day for a reasonable price. We also participate in the federal free and reduced price lunch program for those who qualify. For more information or to apply for free/reduced meals, please see our district Food Services page.

What if my child requires medication during the school day?

We will administer medication in accordance with state regulations and with physician and parental approval. Please complete our medication authorization form (found on the district Health Services page) and bring medications in the original, labeled packaging to the front office.

What is Skyward and how do I get a username and password to use it?

Skyward is just another way we keep communication between home and school strong. It provides you with almost real-time access to your child’s grades, attendance history, and other important information. You should receive your log-in information at the time of registration. If you need assistance, please call the front office of your child’s school.

  • Gang related clothing
  • Bare midriff blouses/shirts; halter tops; bareback blouses/shirts
  • Strapless/spaghetti strapped blouses/shirts
  • Fishnet or muscle shirts

How will I know if school is canceled?

In the event of inclement weather, school may be closed, starting times delayed, or early dismissals called. In either event, we will announce such changes over our local radio stations, WCED AM 1420, WOWQ FM 102.1, WDBA FM 107.3, and WDSN FM 106.5. Please do not call our school lines during such events; we must keep those lines open for emergencies.

How can I get more involved?

We strongly encourage your involvement. Please take the time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. We also invite you to join the PTA at your school and make your voice heard! Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:

  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep 
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast (or getting your child to school early enough to eat breakfast in our cafeteria)
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
