Traffic Flow–  The traffic flow will improve once construction is completed.  However, in the mean time, let’s be respectful to our neighbors.  Please do not park, loiter, or wait in the “La Jara Farms” neighborhood; nor park, loiter, or wait in the gore along the west side of the school along Germann.  Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Please help us stay germ-free and consider sending your child to school with a box of tissues, a bottle of hand sanitizer or a package of disinfectant wipes. Items may be dropped off at the front office.
