A Message from Our Principal

Dear parents,

Welcome September! My, how the year goes so quickly!  

Things to Remember: Safety is very important to the 209U District.  All school doors are locked and remain locked through the school day.  

  • Visitors to the school will enter through the main office. The outside door is unlocked; proceed to the inner door and ring the buzzer. We will ask your name and reason for visit. Please do not be offended if we ask the reason for your visit. You will need to show your government-issued photo ID in order to enter the building. The office will retain your ID throughout your visit for safety reasons.  
  • There are two options for car riders. Option one is to park in the parking lot and walk over to your student. Option two is to get in the car rider line and load your student as the line moves forward. Please do not ask students to walk to the parking lot. That is not allowed.  

Band Sign Up:  Fifth grade students may sign up for band on Monday, September 13 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Please use the game entrance to enter.
