The School Day
Students must be in their classrooms by 8:10 AM. School dismissal is 3:00 p.m. Students who are not staying for Extended School Day must be picked up by 3:20 p.m.
Students should arrive no earlier than 7:45 unless they are enrolled in Extended School Day. Students who arrive before 8:05 should go directly to the gymnasium. Students who arrive after 8:05 should go directly to their classrooms. Please drop your children off near the school entrance in the bottom parking lot and move as quickly as possible so others can drop off their children. Small children should exit the car on the side of the school building. This will prevent children from accidentally stepping in front of an approaching car.
Students must be picked up at the dismissal times listed above. We request that you not ask for students to be dismissed early. Students will be brought to the car-loading area located at the back of the gymnasium at dismissal time. After 3:15 students are taken to Extended School Day. Parents will be charged for Extended School Day if students are not picked up by 3:20.
In order to provide for the safety of our students and to expedite the flow of traffic, we ask that you drive very slowly in the parking lot and follow the traffic pattern outlined at Orientation.
