Highway 105 Update
For your safety, and the safety of others in your vehicle, please do not enter the car rider line before 3PM. Waiting in the median on Highway 105 could be dangerous. Feel free to pull in and park in the parking lot closest to the highway to wait out the line safely. We are working hard to reduce the time parents are spending in line and have been finishing car rider dismissal at about 3:30PM.
**Please note: Out of consideration for the parents waiting in the car rider line, we do not dismiss car riders to parents who "walk up" to the school. You will be asked to wait until the end of the car rider line.
Tardy Students and Early Drop Off
Starting Monday, August 21st, students arriving after 8:00AM must be walked by parents to the front office where you can check them in. Students not in class at 8:00AM will be marked Tardy for the day.
In an effort to reduce the number of tardy students and cars in line in the morning, we accept car riders starting at 7AM.
- We have a limited number of staff on duty.
- Students will need to unload themselves.
- Students will be supervised in the cafeteria where they can read or work on homework.
- The front office will not open until 7:25AM. Staff on duty will not be able to take messages. Parents with business in the school or front office will be asked to wait outside until the school opens at 7:25AM.
