School Hours & Parking Lot Etiquette

The school day begins at 8:10a.m. and ends at 3:13p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; the school day ends at 2:35p.m. on Wednesday. The doors will be opened at 7:50a.m. each morning. Students are not to be dropped off prior to 7:50a.m. on any day. School supervision does not begin until 7:50a.m.

Parents may not pull into the parking lot area (where the buses park) at the end of the school day to pick up their child behind on the school buses. Students must not walk between the buses to get into a car. Anyone picking up a student should pick up the student on the circle driveway. Please do not park on the circle as this blocks the drive. If there is not room on the circle drive, you will have to wait in line on Sexton Street and proceed to the circle drive as space permits, so the student does not have to cross traffic to get into a vehicle.

Please make appropriate drop off and pick up arrangements for your child prior to the start of the school year. Thank you for your cooperation when dropping off or picking up your child.

Study Tables

Do you need a little help with your homework? Maybe you just need a quiet place to study. Come and check out Study Table available to all students from 3:20-4:20pm on Tuesday and Thursday. Check with Mrs. Mahan at the red desk for locations. Students are able to get materials from their lockers and use computers to research, type or complete assignments. Attendance is voluntary. This will begin during the third week of school.
