Parents: in the event of an emergency on campus in which we need to evacuate the school grounds, we will have our students bussed to University High School where you will be able to reunite with them. In such an event, we will make an announcement via our text and call system alerting you to the evacuation and the procedures for picking up your child at the evacuation site (UHS on Rhode Island in Orange City).

Homework is an integral part of the learning process and should be done primarily for practice that reinforces lessons presented in school. Homework provides and encourages parental involvement in your child's education.
