Important Announcements:


The Greenspun administration and staff would like to thank parents for their assistance in the enforcement of the ID Badge and Lanyard policy. We are happy to announce that 99% of our students are reporting to their classes with their identification. We appreciate your diligence in helping us to keep our students safe and teaching them responsibility.


Please remind your children that destruction of the school or community property is a violation of the law. We have had reports about our students trashing and vandalizing property on their way home from school. We have also had reports about students throwing rocks at cars as they drive by. These actions not only cause property damage, but could also cost lives in the event of an accident.


As always, the Greenspun Parking Lot and Valle Verde can become extremely congested before or after school when parents are picking up their children. This is a reminder to adhere to traffic laws and refrain from illegal U-turns in front of the school, as well as in neighboring, gated communities. Most importantly, practice patience and goodwill to avoid a tragic traffic accident as you drop off or wait for your children after school. Any students who are non-compliant with their required vaccinations must turn in updated health records to the health office by Tuesday, April 19. Please contact the health office with any questions.
