Student Tardiness

We are still having a problem with tardies. Parents, it is imperative we get your help to ensure your students arrive at school on time and are in their seats by 7:40 am, ready to learn. Have them to school no later than 7:30 am every day.


We realize there may be a backup when you get to school and are working to keep cars moving quickly and safely through the drop-off lane.


  • Upon arrival, if there is space, pull forward past the crossing before letting your student get out of the car. Our staff will assist with arrival and encourage drivers to pull forward. If you are told to move forward, please do.
  • Get to school before 7:30 am to avoid the rush. Our building opens at 7 am for student arrival.

Students arriving after the 7:40 am bell will be issued tardy slips.

We appreciate your help!
