Sixth grade students should be dropped off and enter the main doors. Seventh and eighth grade students should be dropped off at the gym doors. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria each morning. Breakfast will be free to all students for the first three days of school.

Dismissal for parent pick-ups takes place first (around 2:35 pm). Our 6th grade students will be dismissed through the front entrance doors and the 7th/8th grade students will be dismissed through the band and gymnasium doors. Bus riders are dismissed once the buses arrive and are lined up in front at the Danby entrance area. Thank you for following these procedures to support a safe, efficient dismissal each day.

Visitors to Building

The entry process and expectations are as follows:

  • Visitors must scan their ID at the Raptor kiosk (located in the front foyer) for every visit to gain entry into the building past the front foyer.
  • Upon approval, visitors will be buzzed into the office to receive their ID sticker from office staff.
  • Visitors, not needing to enter the building may continue to "buzz” in at the A/V box outside our school's front office door for assistance.

These procedures are in place to help add more security to our school to keep our children as safe as possible! Thank you for your cooperation with these important safety measures!
