Principal's Message

Hello Islander Parents:

The end of 1st semester is coming to an end this month. Below are some items that you should be aware of that involve your students.

Field Trips Volunteers: Our district policies and procedures requires about a 1:10 ratio of adult supervision when students go on field trips. We really appreciate the help of our chaperones provide on field trips because, it makes the experience for students a safe one. If for some reason you have to cancel it is helpful to let the teacher know as much in advance as you can so he/she can find another replacement volunteer chaperone for the field trip that was planned. Read More
