Drop-Off and Pick-Up Map
If you plan to drop your student off in the morning and/or pick them up in the afternoon, please refer to this map which indicates the flow of traffic you should follow.  Also, please drive slowly and with care in the parking lots!

Technology Protection Plan
You can now enroll and take advantage of our district’s Technology Protection Plan (TPP) that can help protect you and your student from costly repairs to their iPad due to unforeseen damage. For only $25 per year, this agreement covers the iPad loaned to the student for the 2021-2022 school year against incidental damage or loss over $50. Accessories (charger and case) and damages valued at less than $50 are NOT covered and are the sole responsibility of the student. Coverage is 24 hours per day. The Technology Protection Plan will only cover two incidents per school year. NEGLECT IS NOT COVERED. The TPP is available to all students in grades K-12 during the 2021-2022 school year.
