Dear Murphy Ranch Families,

Welcome to the 2024-25 school year! We're honored to be entrusted with your children's education and are committed to providing a safe environment where they can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.


This year's theme is superhero-inspired: "You Have the Power!" We're excited to collaborate with our PTA on various fun events that emphasize our teamwork here at The Ranch.


As we approach the August 13th start date, please note:

  • Visit for supply lists, Parent/Student Handbook, and contact information.
  • Class lists will be on Aeries the afternoon of Friday, August 9th.
  • Check our Events Calendar for key dates.
  • The Parent Hub offers quick links to important information.

  • Daily schedules are available online.
  • Campus gates open at 7:40 AM for kindergarten, 7:47 AM for grades 1-5.
  • Drop-off locations: Janine gate (kindergarten), Grovedale gate (1st & 2nd), Janine Parking Lot (3rd-5th). Gates close at 7:57 AM (kindergarten) and 8:07 AM (others).
