A Note From Our Assistant Principal
We hope that you all had a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving with your loved ones. As the winter holidays approach, we have many special activities planned for our students and look forward to spending the season with them. Keep an eye out for additional information sent via Links 2 Home.
Weather-Related Closure Reminders
As a reminder, we do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our parents. If we must close, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website.
This year, we are collecting new toys for Toy for Joy in partnership with the Hillsboro Fire Department and Elks Lodge. Please drop off items in our school lobby by December 10th. We thank you for your generosity in helping others in need this holiday season.
