  • Attention Parents,

    It is one of our top priorities to keep you well informed of district schedule changes as well as ensuring we have smooth transportation services on early dissmissal days throughout the school year for students.

    To better assist you with this transition,  all early dismissals days for students will be color-coded in "YELLOW" on all district website calenders.

    Beginning September 11th, we will release students the second Wednesday of each month for staff meetings and professional development purposes.

    We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make this transition in our school calender from previous years.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the distrcict office at (815) 486-7398.
