        Welcome Back!

We are very excited to be back and to have school starting again in just five short days.  We will be watching the air quality while we are outside at recess.  If the quality is at an unsafe level, students will be inside for recess.  This will be monitored throughout the day.  The lunchroom will be open on the first day of school if you would like to put money on your child’s lunch account.  Supply lists can be found on the district website under Parents and Patrons. We have some new staff to announce.  Mrs. Diehl will be joining us in the nurse’s office.  She is taking the place of Mrs. Joyce.  Mrs. Narus was hired as one of our kindergarten teachers along with Mrs. Canas.  They are replacing Mrs. Taylor who has taken a leave of absence.  Miss Lori in the lunchroom has taken a new position in district.  Our new kitchen manager is Mrs. Barrera. In the music department we will have Mrs. Finch and a return to Trail Wind from Mrs. Vachal.  We are very happy to have all of these staff members join our school.  This fall we are anticipating a large project with the purchase and installation of new playground equipment thanks to our incredible PTO!  Lots to look forward to this year!

Posting of Class Lists

For years we have posted class lists on our doors the Friday before school starts.  It was always fun to see the students come up to the doors to see who their teacher was going to be for the year.  Unfortunately the practice was putting student safety at risk.  We work very hard to keep student information safe.  Student information includes first and last name with grade level.  Posting that information felt risky as we cannot control who views those lists.  To further ensure the safety of your student this decision was made.  We apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused to use Infinite Campus to review class placement.
