Food deliveries from any delivery service are prohibited on campus. We can only accept food from parents/family members for their student only. Parents are not allowed to bring food for other students.
Please take a moment to review our policy for students riding home on a bus with another student:
- A note is needed from both parties; the student that is going home with a friend AND a note from the friend's parent.
- Both notes must have a parent signature and a phone number.
- The campus will contact both parties for verification. Notes can be provided ahead of time for verification.
- Students will not be allowed to go home with their friend on the bus if we have not had verbal confirmation from both parties.
I appreciate everyone’s understanding with this policy. Please let me know if you have any questions, I will be happy to assist you.

This year we are using a system called HERO this year that will keep track of tardy/no id/cell phone violations. We also use this system for Tiger Tickets and positive behavior. Parents are able to keep track of their students' tardy/no id violations as well as how many tiger tickets they have earned. Here are the directions:
- You must create an account on the computer first before downloading the app. Please go to https://herok12.com/. Click on sign in (top right corner)
- After clicking sign in, click on the picture that says parents
- Click on create an account
- Hit submit after filling out the information
- Click add a student
- Click “no” when the message asks if you have a code
- Fill out your child's information
- After you have followed these steps, you can download the APP.
- Type in your search “HeroK12”. Download the HERO APP, which is a blue color (it will say students).
Please let me know if you need any assistance.
