Please note that all students are required to have a school-issued lock for PE. However, students may wear their own solid-color t-shirt with sleeves and basketball-type shorts; no logos or school names are allowed, and PE clothes must be different from what students wear to school.

New shot requirements for 7th graders!! No shots, no school.

Starting in the 2019-2020 school year, 7th grade students are required to also have a 2nd dose of Varicella (chicken pox) in addition to the T-Dap booster. You can download flyers that outline the requirements in English or Spanish.
