A Message from our Principal

Puma Families, 

The start of our 2021–2022 school year is just a week away on July 28, and we are incredibly excited to welcome our Pumas back! As I mentioned in my welcome back letter, there is a considerable amount of construction occurring around campus. Currently, 103rd Ave. from Broadway to Chipman is closed. In order to most efficiently manage traffic before school during this closure, we will open up our east gate along 101st Ave. (by the baseball/softball/soccer fields), along with our west parking lot or parent drop-offs. All other arrival and dismissal procedures will remain the same.

School Start Time

Our school day will begin at 8:00 a.m. The doors will be open to students beginning at 7:45 a.m.

School Drop-Off

All student drop-offs in the morning will occur at the east gate or the west parking lot. We reserve the south parking lot for bus riders and walkers. 


Our students who walk to school should plan to arrive on campus no earlier than 7:45 a.m. They will enter through the south gate and through the main hallway doors. 


  • We dismiss kindergarten students at 3:00 p.m.
  • We dismiss walkers from the east or west gates at 3:00 p.m.
  • We dismiss parent pick-up students in the west parking lot at 3:00 p.m.
  • We dismiss bus riders out the main gate.

The first day of school is always a special time for students and families, especially for our youngest learners. We want to invite our Kindergarten parents to enjoy the experience of walking your child to his/her classroom that first day (July 28) if you choose.

We also would like to invite kindergarten families to the library after dropping off their students for a light snack and some quick information. For all other grades, we will enact our standard campus entry procedures for arrival.

Thank you for your partnership. Together we are going to make this a great year!
