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.

PTO is also happy to recognize our Premium Level donor families, the Ator’s, Koch’s, Weller’s and Solano’s.
A very special thank you goes out to our Gold Level and Platinum Level families, The Shibler’s and the Hyman’s for their generous contributions to PTO. We look forward to installing your custom engraved bricks after our new building construction is complete.
