Student health and safety is our number one priority.

Each year, our Site Council and our School Board revise and update our School Safety Plan to ensure that we are implementing current best practices to provide safe and healthy campuses. This plan includes information and guidance on a variety of topics ranging from supporting positive attendance through safe practices regarding communicable diseases and viruses (such as COVID) to crisis response plans and positive campus environments. If you would like to review our current plan, please scroll to the bottom of this page.

If you have any questions, please contact your site principal.
