Please pardon our mess..
Please excuse our parking lot mess for the next few weeks while we begin the replacement of the Intermediate Campus and Elementary Cafeteria roofs.  While the parking lots may be a little cluttered with equipment, classroom instruction should not be affected because most of the work will be occurring after school hours.
