Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
We thank you for your cooperation in maintaining our procedures for arrival and dismissal!
Doors open at 8:55 and the school day begins at 9:00. Once the car loop closes, students must be walked in by a parent at the main entrance (with security) and they will be marked TARDY for the day.
Reminder: All students using the car loop should be prepared to exit the car on the passenger side. For maximum efficiency, please pull your car all the way up to the cones at the top of the car loop so we can unload as many cars as possible at one time.
Student dismissal for grades K-4 will be at 3:35. Out of respect for our staff, please be on time for dismissal. In the event of an emergency, please notify the main office about your delay.
Changes in Dismissal
Please call the main office if you need emergency, last-minute support with dismissal. We are here to help.
