If you'd like to switch your order for your student from a youth size to an adult size, please contact Lisa Ferrier at lisabferrier@gmail.com by Wednesday, September 21st.

    Safe Route to School Trail (Hanson Park Comprehensive Water Management Project)

    The Rice Creek Watershed District will be completing a comprehensive water management project which will impact the “Safe Route to School” trail through Hansen Park.  The “Safe Route to School” trail will not be available for student use beginning fall of 2016 through fall of 2018.  In cooperation with the City of New Brighton, an alternative route for students to follow has been created.  We have contacted families who may be impacted by this change, but wanted to provide the information to all families.  Please contact the school or the City of New Brighton if you have additional questions.  Attached is a map showing the alternative route.  Alternative Route Map

    Back-to-School Morning Drop-Off Reminder

    Please do not drop off students for school before 8:20 am.  There is not adult supervision until this time and students can not come into the building until 8:25 am for breakfast or 8:30 am to go to their classrooms.  Thank you!
