Parking Lot Safety

For the safety of our staff and students please slow down when you enter and exit the Stilwell parking lot.


Dismissal Info: Weather Related

With Iowa’s ever changing weather conditions, please discuss with your child a  contingency plan if activities are cancelled or there is early dismissal – please let your child know if they should get on the bus or wait for a parent.  


 Parents-Important to Note

If your student is going to be leaving early from school, please send a note with your student and they can come into the office at 7:25 a.m. to get a pass to leave when needed. This helps so we do not have to call into a classroom and disrupt learning time.  If your student is coming in LATE, we do not answer phones during that time.  Please send a note with them.



Student Lockers

Please do not write or hang things on the outside of student lockers. Markers on the outside of student’s lockers is not allowed!!! . Spirit Club is the only group that can add things to lockers.
