Helpful Solution to the Morning Car Rider line suggestion by one of our Hawk parents...

Beginning Monday, October 4: we will be opening two drop-off areas to help you get to work and to ease congestion in the mornings.

Choose your option.

Option 1:

Continue with the normal morning drop-off procedure. This is best for kiddos that need help getting out of their car.

  • Doors open at 7:40.
  • Staff will continue to unload.
  • Staff comes in at 8:00 am
  • After 8:00, parents will need to walk their children into the building.
  • Students are tardy after 8:05.

Option 2:

Drop off in the back at the gate on Prestonwood.

  • This is for students that can get themselves out of the car and close the car door on their own.
  • We WILL NOT have care unloaders in the back.
  • We will have Coach Hughes at the gate on Prestonwood to greet the children.
  • We will not have parents past the gate in the morning. We will also have staff at the door to the building letting kiddos in and they can either go to breakfast or to class.
  • Drop-off between 7:40-7:55.
  • After 7:55, swing your child around to the front as the staff will head inside in order to be in classes by 8:00.

Let's see if this helps everyone.

Feedback is wanted, only if it is kind & helpful. LOL

Hi Hawk Families:

If you have some time to spare and would like to volunteer at your child's school or even from your home. We have some opportunities for you.

Please click the link below and fill in the Google Form.

As events occur, you will be called closer to the event as a reminder.

Thank you!

Does your child still need a Chromebook?

A SchoolCash account has been created for each child. There is NO FEE, but it allows the parent to sign the Parental Agreement for the device.

  • If you already have a SchoolCash account, the form will appear as an item in your cart. They will click the link to sign the form and it will process through.
  • If you do not have a SchoolCash account, you will need to create an account, add your student(s), and then click to sign the agreement form.

Below are directions for creating a SchoolCash account, as well as a parent letter answering some questions.


Is this a requirement before a student receives a Chromebook?

Yes. This form must be signed before we will issue out a device.

When can parents start to log in and sign?

The item is attached to all students right now.

What about new enrollees? How do they sign?

SchoolCash syncs up with our systems each night. So if a parent completes enrollment (and the registrar completes the process) before say 5 pm today, they would be able to create their SchoolCash account tomorrow and sign the form.

How will parents know they need to complete this step?

We are asking that you share this information with your parents so they will know there is an electronic form to sign this year.

School Hours


Doors will open at 7:40 for students to begin entering. They may choose to go get their breakfast or head to class. Breakfast doors close at 8:00 am and breakfast is stopped being served.

At 8:00 am, our car rider team leaves their duty to begin working with their students in the classroom. If you arrive after 8:00 am, please park and walk your children to the door to check them in as staff will not be outside.

Tardy is 8:05.

Located in the cafe on the stage

If your child has forgotten or lost an item, you are welcome to come in and check lost and found.

Your child is welcome to look at the items during their breakfast or lunch. If you would like to look for yourself, please call the front desk to schedule to come to the campus between 8:30-10:00 am. We will be glad to have a staff member help you search for your child's items.

At the end of each month, items will be donated.

**Helpful Tip: Please label your child's belongings. If we find it, we will make sure it gets delivered to the student.
