Students who skateboard to school are asked to place their skateboards in their lockers upon arriving at school. Students should not arrive at school before 8:00 a.m.
School Alert will no longer be used to notify parents and staff of school closings or late starts. The district has invested in a new mass notification system that will call and e-mail you with this information
School closing information will also be announced on radio stations WCCO AM 830, KRWC AM 1360 (Buffalo) and television channels 4, 5, and 11. School alert is also available through our district website. On mornings of inclement weather, you may call the office for a school closing message.
