building access

The office staff has returned from summer break, however, we are asking that all business be taken care of through email, phone or virtual meetings. Students should not be in the building unless they are here for a scheduled event (sports, band, orientation, etc.)

Students will not be permitted to come into the buildings early to set up their lockers or drop off school supplies. This includes students who are in the building for sports or band. 

Parking passes will not be available until school starts.

Senior and Retiree pass distribution will be held August 14th and 21st from 2pm -4pm at the Administrative Office (Entrance B)

School Supply Lists

There are a lot of questions surrounding school supplies this year. The lists are posted below, along with some answers to frequently asked questions. For school supplies, we're adopting the motto, "Bring what you can, when you can." If your child can bring the basics to start the year - pencils, paper, a folder, glue, scissors, crayons/markers/colored pencils - they should be okay for the first few weeks of school.

Elementary School

Middle School

High School

If you cannot find an item, cleaning wipes for example, please do not stress. Bring what you can, when you can.

If you are worried about your child transporting all of their supplies to school, please contact your building, or bring what you can, when you can.


This year Back-to-School Night and Open House will be conducted differently. Building access is still very limited. Only specific groups of students will be contacted for in-person back-to-school night events. Please see information about each building below. 

*If your student is in one of the groups for an in-person back-to-school night, please contact the building office if you missed the open house for your student so that an alternate arrangements can be made.
