Level Up 2021-2022

It was great to see everyone that could make it to one of our Meet the Teacher times on Friday. If you weren't able to make it, don't worry, you are welcome to walk in with your student and introduce yourself to the teacher on Monday morning. We will also have lots of friendly staff lining the halls and in the cafeteria to assist students coming in from buses and cars. We will make sure they all get to where they need to go. Our staff is excited for a great year of learning and fun and can't wait to see you soon!

First Day of School Reminders

  • Doors will open at 7:45, parents are welcome to walk their students to class on the first day.
  • Be patient, parking will be limited due to ongoing construction.
  • Have your student wear the green Transportation sticker they received at Meet the Teacher to school on Monday.
  • PreK classes will meet in the cafeteria every morning.
  • 5th grade classes, and 4th grade, Ms. Garrison's class, will meet in the cafeteria on the first day only.
  • Due to breakfast and additional classes in the cafeteria, we ask that parents say good-bye to their students at the cafeteria doors.
  • Dismissal begins at 3:30
  • Buses will run longer the first few days as the students and drivers learn the stops.

Car Riders

AM drop off will be at the front of the school, please make a right hand turn into the parking lot from Schroeder and a right hand turn when you exit. This will help keep traffic flowing.

PM pick up will be at the back of the school. The line will form on Prestonwood. Please do not access Prestonwood from Glencliffe (by the pool) as this will block the buses from leaving.

Car Tags will be needed for PM pick up. They will be available in the front office from 8:30-2:30 on Monday. Anyone without a Car Tag will be asked to sign their student out in the front office by showing an ID.
