A Message from Principal Little:
NOTE TO PARENTS AND STUDENTS: Parents and students concerned about any school fees please be reassured that we will work with each and every parent and no student will be denied class. Nearly all students qualify for waived fees, and for any who do not, we will work with you. All students being in school is more important!
