We are looking forward to seeing our students and families on the first day of school at our brand new campus located at 4004 Gloster Way.  Click here for map of the campus to help you find your child's classroom. For the first day of school only, parents are welcome to walk students to the classroom. Also, BASE is temporarily located in the Kindergarten hub until the Multi Purpose room is completed. 


First through fifth grade students who are dropped off in the car line between 9:10 and 9:30 should proceed to the lunch tables near the playground and we will walk them to class. TK and Kindergarten students should proceed to the kindergarten playground area if coming with parents, or if dropped off in  the car line, they will be escorted to the kinder playground.
