Please Check our Lost and Found

While attending conferences next week, please take a moment to check out our Lost and Found table behind the office in the hallway.  All items not claimed by spring break will be donated to local clothing banks.

Please Follow Traffic Rules When Picking Up or Dropping Off Students

Please observe traffic rules when picking up or dropping off students.  We have observed cars running stop signs, as well as illegal parking in front of and behind the school.  Please do not double park to pick up or drop off students.  This creates unsafe conditions for students, staff and families.  Please be aware that violators are subject to citations by the Aberdeen Police Department.

School Closure Alerts

With the winter weather upon us, it is important for parents to be able to get up-to-date information regarding school closures.  If you have not yet signed up for the FlashAlert system, you may do so by going to  www.flashalert.net and signing up for text and/or email messages regarding school closures and other alerts.  School closures and delays are also announced on local radio and television stations.
