Mission Statement

The mission of School District #304 is to educate students within an environment that encourages the desire to learn and enhance the teaching of skills necessary to meet the unique academic, personal, physical, and social needs of each individual.
The school program will reflect the values and ambitions of the community and every student will be challenged to develop intellectual and learning skills to his/her fullest potential, preparing him/her to become a contributing member of society.

Visitor Policy

Visitors will be given a badge to be worn at all times while in the school building. Please sign in at the office when you arrive and sign out and return the visitor badge upon leaving the building. The procedures for reporting to the principal's office, signing in, and wearing a visitor badge must be followed any time visitors enter the school building, including times when parents come to school to wait for a child at the end of the school day. Parents may wait outside the appropriate school exit for their child if they do not wish to sign in at the office and wear a visitor badge. Parents are not permitted to go to the classrooms and wait outside the doorways. This causes distractions in the classroom during instructional time and poses a security problem as well.

Student visitors are not permitted to attend classes or school parties.
