Please update and check your contact information
Every year we ask that parents update their contact information with the front office and return opening day packet information. As we move more toward paperless we will be asking every parent to take advantage of the features Parent Portal offers. You will still receive your paper opening day packet this year but digital copies will be available on the portal. We are also asking that every parent completes the Free and Reduced Lunch application. Every student in California now receives free breakfast and lunch through public schools. To receive funding for this program through the state, we need to have Free and Reduced Lunch applications completed by all parents. Even if you think you will not qualify, please complete the application either online or on paper. Please click below for detailed information.
