New Start Time Reminder

Just a reminder that we have a new start time this year. Most students will be remote to start, but for the populations still doing in-person learning, here is a reminder:

Grades K-6 will start at 9:30 with student drop off at 9:15am. Parents of students in grades K-6 are unfortunately not permitted to walk their students to class.

Pre-K start time is 9:10am with drop off between 8:55-9:10am. If you wish to walk your pre-k student to class, you must be masked and arrive between 8:55 and 9:10am. If you arrive after 9:10, you will not be permitted to walk your student to class. A staff member will walk your student down after he/she signs in as tardy at the front office.

Packet Pick Up

We had packet pick up today from 10am-12pm. If you didn't pick up your packet, please come to the front doors and ring the bell between 8am-4pm to pick up your packet.
