We are having a high school chapel for the families of high students to give them the opportunity to get a glimpse of what we do in our weekly chapels.

As an enhancement to our current security system, new automatic security gates have been installed at the Middle School entrance on SW 67 Avenue. The gates will be open during drop-off and pick-up, and will be closed during school hours. To leave campus after the gates have been closed, please approach slowly and the gates will open automatically, allowing you to exit. During school hours, visitors to the Middle School and High School should enter at the guard gate on SW 152 St. Visitors to the Elementary School campus should continue to gain access by buzzing at the side entry door, and wait to be let in. Thank you for your cooperation as we work to keep our school community safe.
