Student Pick Up/Drop Off

Students may be dropped off anytime after 7:10am and our new dismissal time is 2:40pm.

Please drop off and pick up your child along the sidewalk on Petrova Ave.

There is no parent pickup in the Gym parking lot between 2:35 and 3:45pm. This area must remain free of standing vehicles so that our sports busses may enter and exit the Gym area. After 3:45, please pull into a parking space in order to wait for your child.

6th grade students will be dismissed through door #14 and 7th and 8th grade students will dismiss through Door #5.

Remember: we now offer bus runs at 3:30pm and 4:30pm for students with a pass from a coach or extra curricular activity advisor!


Please be sure to update the forms that will come home with your child on the first day of school. This paperwork is due on September 13th. These forms include the Census Form, Photo and Field Trip Permission Form, Emergency Release Form and others.

Please make sure that current custody paperwork is on file for your child.

Don't forget to communicate with the nurse if there have been any major changes in your child's health!

Wait, no backpacks during the school day? There's no way it will all fit in my locker! (Or will it?)

Let's see....

Middle School Cell Phone Use

In order to promote a productive learning environment, your child is expected to have their cell phone turned off and in their locker or with Mr. Carlisto between 7:45 and 2:35. Please do not attempt to reach your child by cell phone during this time. Call our Main Office and leave a message with Debbie Sweeney (891-4221) and we will be sure your child gets it.

Students who engage in cell phone use during the day will have their phones confiscated by school staff. On the second offense, parents will have to come in to claim a student's confiscated cell phone.
