Dear Parents
We would like to introduce you to a new system our school has acquired to help protect your children, called V-soft. V-soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer more monitored environment for the students.
When visitors, volunteers or contractors check-in, or parents come to pick up students, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system. The system has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of the campus.
We feel certain this will help us keep our campus a little safer, and ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at the school. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.

Principal's Message


Dear Parents and Students,
   Welcome back to another new and exciting year. With each new year comes the opportunity to grow as a student. Parents, I encourage you to take time each night to go over your child's homework and study with them. The middle school years are important to make sure your child is on track for high school. I look forward to a great year and wish you and your child the best year.
