IMPORTANT ITEMS TO REMEMBER IN 2023-2024...
Each school day officially ends at 2:10 p.m.. If it is necessary to leave school before dismissal time, students must bring a note signed by a parent/guardian to the Attendance Desk in the Main Lobby or be signed out directly by a parent/guardian. In order to minimize disruptions in Period 9 and to provide a safe end-of-day and bussing dismissal we ask that, unless there is an emergency, students are not picked up for early dismissal after 1:55pm
Tardies: Once a student is tardy, the system keeps track of how many they have. Automatic emails are sent to inform parents.
Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up: Use the main entrance circular student drop-off area.
The east driveway opposite Bloomer Road is reserved for use by school buses only. NO STUDENT DROP-OFFS OR PICK-UPS CAN OCCUR ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING DUE TO THE ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE OF BUSES and for overall student safety.
PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT HIGHLIGHTS:
IN THE EVENT OF SCHOOL CANCELLATIONS OR EARLY RELEASES:
In the case of inclement weather, or other reasons, parents will be contacted by the School Messenger program. Please make sure we have your current contact information updated in ParentPortal.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE DIRECTIONS:
For the welfare and safety of all students, it is requested that students do not arrive at school any earlier than 7:00 a.m.
There is no supervision prior to this time.
The first bell rings at 7:20 a.m. and the tardy bell rings at 7:28 a.m.
Classroom instruction begins promptly at 7:28 a.m.
STUDENT ARRIVAL/DISMISSAL PRECAUTIONS:
All bus route and bus stop information can be found on the ParentPortal.
PARENT DROP-OFF AND PICKUP:
Parents driving their child(ren) to school are asked to stay to the right on the front driveway entrance from June Road and use the circular student drop-off area at the front of the building. Please pull to the end of the circle to allow students to depart and please do not leave cars unattended in this area. Use the circle to pick up students at the end of the day as well. Please note that the east driveway opposite Bloomer Road is reserved for use by school buses only, NO STUDENT DROP-OFFS OR PICK-UPS CAN OCCUR ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING DUE TO THE ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE OF BUSES.
Student parking is reserved for Seniors only. Please be sure to complete a parking application with the Main Office.
Please be aware that students who arrive at school tardy will be documented by the Attendance Desk. Parents of students arriving at school late will be required to send a note in with their child.
Please report all absences to the Attendance Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All visitors must check-in at the Security Kiosk. Visitors during the school day must have an appointment.
We share academic progress reports in the middle of each quarter and report cards at the end of each quarter. Both reports are accessed through the ParentPortal.
