Dear Parents and Guardians,
Currently, the start and end times for the elementary and secondary are as follows:
Elementary 8:10 AM- 2:50 AM and Secondary 8:20 AM- 2:50 PM. This arrangement creates some concerns and we are going to switch the end and start times just the opposite. Beginning in the fall of 2018 the elementary will start at 8:15 AM and end at 2:50 AM ; while the secondary school will begin at 8:10 AM and end at 2:40 PM. This adjustment will improve the safety of our younger students and reduce some of the heavy traffic flow during the drop off and pick up times. In addition, our younger students will spend less time on the bus and leave the elementary directly. We will monitor the situation in the beginning of the school year and make changes as needed to make sure our students are safe and arrive home in a timely manner.

Safety is one of our district's top priorities and to help safeguard our school community, we are now using SafeSchools Alert. SafeSchools Alert is a tip reporting service that allows students, staff, and parents to submit safety concerns to our administration four different ways:
1. Phone: 509-673-7070
2. Text: Text your tip to 509-673-7070
3. Email: email@example.com
4. Web: http://1533.alert1.us
You and your child can easily report tips on bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism or any safety issue you are concerned about. Every tip SafeSchools Alert receives about our district is immediately logged in the system and our administration is notified so they can investigate and take appropriate action. And, tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.
Please contact your building administrator, or district office staff, with any questions.
