March 20 Message from Principal Parler

Thanks to the parents who emailed me after my Wednesday night dial-out to assure me that they had not stopped by school because they had the necessary technology at home and their children were on-line doing their school work. If you are reading this and you still have not taken the proper measures to make sure your child has a school-issued Chromebook or packets of materials, you need to email me at If I do not hear from you by Saturday, I will be contacting you via phone. I can make myself available to meet you at the front door of the school and bring you what you need. I cannot allow you to enter the building.
