Select a School
Welcome students, parents, and staff to the first quarter of the 2016-17 school year. School starts at 9:00 a.m. with breakfast served between 8:10 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. at all sites.
To support your child’s success in school, make sure they arrive on time every day. Students need an attendance rate of at least 95% to be successful in school. To be successful they not only need to be present in school, they need to be well rested.
Recommended time for sleep for ages 5-6: 10-12 hours, ages 7-12: 10-11 hours, and ages 12-18: 8-9 hours. Keeping a sleep routine throughout the year will support your child’s success in school.
Adapting healthy sleep routines helps students get the required rest they need. Some suggestions include: skip caffeine and pop after dinner, get regular exercise, turn off electronic devices an hour before bedtime, and silence phones so text messages or alerts don't disrupt sleep. In addition, enforcing an early bedtime on the weekends will make Monday mornings easier to deal with. It’s never too late to establish good sleeping an attendance habits. Start now and keep these habits throughout the school year.
I look forward to working together with you to support our students and staff as together we embrace and promote the District's mission: “TO PROVIDE A LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT INSPIRES AND CHALLENGES STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES TO EXCEL.”
