Parent and Student Information

Students may arrive on campus at 8:50 am. The first bell rings and school begins at 9:00 am. The school day ends at 3:20 pm.   

24-Hour Absence Line
Please call (509) 465-6484 to let us know when your student will not be attending school due to illness, travel or parental discretion. You may leave a message on this line 24 hours a day.

No Pets
For the safety of our students and your pets, please do not bring your pets onto school property. If you bring the family dog with you to pick up your son or daughter, please keep your pet in the car. For student safety, it is important that we follow this new guideline. We love pets as well, but we cannot risk student safety at any time. Thanks for your understanding and support.

No Cellphones or Electronics 
Because cell phones are disruptive to learning in our classrooms, students may not use cell phones at school. Cell phones that are turned off, may be stored in a student's backpack for use after school. This includes: iPods, MP3 players, and handheld games such as Gameboy and DS. Electronics will be confiscated and parents will be called to pick them up in the office.

Literacy Screening
Beginning in the 2021-22 school year, each school district will screen students in grades K-2 for weaknesses in literacy skill development that may be associated with dyslexia. Click here for more information on literacy screening.
