Please remember that the school building open at 7:00 am. The tardy bell rings at 7:40 am. Students must be in the classroom by 7:40. If you do not see an adult outside on duty, please walk your child into the front office to sign them in.

Afternoon Pick-Up

We have certainly improved our pick-up time since the beginning of the year. Parents-please keep in mind that we are finishing up with dismissal at 2:35. We would encourage your to be in line no later than 2:30. At 2:35, we will be taking students to the front office and you will need to pull around front, park, come into the office, and sign your child out. We would certainly appreciate your help in getting our students loaded in a timely manner.
