Out of an abundance of caution, all student activities will be held indoors until further notice today. This is due to the reported benzene vapor that was released by the chemical fire that occurred in the Deer Park area earlier this week.
We have been informed by county officials that the air quality has not been compromised and that there are no health risks to our students and residents. However, we will continue to monitor the situation throughout the day and modify our outdoor activity schedule as needed.

You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.
During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.
It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!
We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)
