Car Riders

Just a reminder!

We start letting students into the building at 7:45 a.m. Car riders should arrive before 8:00 a.m. With announcements beginning at 8:00 a.m. and instruction beginning at 8:05 a.m., we want all our Benfield Bulldogs ready for the day. Students arriving after 8:00 a.m. are considered tardy and will need to come to the office to get a pass to class.

Looking Ahead
