After School Traffic Patterns

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve our drop off and pick up traffic patterns. In order to keep our students safe, we have adjusted the traffic pattern entering from 8th Street. The entrance from 8th street will allow families to park in the parking lot, walk down to the student area, and pick up or drop off students. The parking lot exit is now a right turn only onto Duke street. No left hand turns into the drive through lanes will be allowed from the parking lot area. Families using the drive through lanes will need to enter from Duke street.

Attendance Policy


Every minute Counts!

· School Starts at 7:40am and the final bell rings at 7:50am.

· Your student’s attendance directly affects their success and we want them to SUCCEED!

· 3 Parent Notes for excused absences will be accepted for each student per year.

· If your student has 10+ unexcused absences in a 6 month period, your case will be referred to attendance court.

· If your student has 18+ total absences, excused or unexcused, the attendance committee will review absences and create a program for credit recovery in order to prevent retention.
