School doors open at 7:00.

Please do not drop off children and pull away before 7:00 am. Doors are unlocked at 7:00, and dropping them off earlier means that they are outside unsupervised. For the safety of your children, please wait until you see an adult open the school doors to let your children out of the car. Thank you for putting safety first!

Please have your child at school by 7:40. If not, please walk them inside to the office.

Please do not drop children off, watch them enter the doors, and pull off. This is not a safe practice, and we ask you for the safety of your children to please walk them inside.

Need to change your child's transportation - phone call or handwritten notes accepted.

Please make sure you communicate any transportation changes through a handwritten note or phone call to the front office at 821-420. Do not communicate transportation changes via an email to the teacher. Your email may not be read before dismissal.
