    Parents, please be mindful that students may not be dropped off in the morning in any of our parking lots. Our parking lots and driveways are super busy with cars. It is not safe for any student or adult to be crossing in between the cars in the drop off line. As a reminder, the bus loading dock is not open for student drop off until 7:30 each morning and closes to drop-offs at 7:45. After 7:45, all students must enter through the front doors and are considered tardy. It is important that all parents use the designated drop off areas for student arrival. Thank you for your help with this safety concern.

  • UTK H.A.B.I.T. Reading Paws Program

    We are excited to be partnered with the UTK H.A.B.I.T. Reading Paws program to help improve student literacy and self esteem. This amazing program allows therapy dogs to visit classrooms where students are able to read to them. Permission forms are sent home before a dog will visit the classroom. Learn more about the program here: https://vetmed.tennessee.edu/outreach/Pages/habit_home.aspx
