Welcome Back To School!
Welcome Back Students & Staff!
We are very excited for the 2017-2018 school year and hope you are too!
With all the excitement of starting school, unfortunately comes some confusion. We want to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible for you so please be sure to contact any of the school offices if you have any questions. Whether you are a returning student, or a new student, there are many forms that you will need to complete and return to your school at the beginning of the year. It is important that students attend registrations and orientations at their school prior to the first day of school. You will receive all paperwork and information needed to ensure you have the greatest school year yet!
