Welcome to our NEW website!

We are excited to welcome you to our new, redesigned website! Thank you to all who participated in our website survey earlier this school year. Your feedback helped guide the development of our redesign.
One feature that directly resulted from survey results is the new quick link buttons for students and parents.  These buttons, located in the upper right-hand corner of every page, offer one-click access to many frequently visited pages, resources, and links. Another new feature, a fully responsive design that easily adjusts to fit any size screen, desktop, or mobile device and is compatible with commonly used assistive technologies.  
We want to continue to enhance communication and encourage you to send us your questions and suggestions via the site's contact us page. Thank you again for your input in this process and your continued involvement in our school community!  #WestShoreProud
TEACHER PAGES: To quickly navigate to the teacher pages, click the blue PARENTS button in the upper right-hand corner of this page.
