The new Arcade will have state-of-the art classrooms; expanded facilities for our STEAM program, including a maker space and a media classroom with a full recording studio; a modernized MP Room; and a parking lot with a pickup and drop-off loop.
Completion of the project is expected for the start of the 2024-25 school year.

Information on Early Dismissals from School
Please avoid picking your student up early from school. It is important that students are only pulled from class when absolutely necessary, so they do not miss valuable instruction.
At Arcade, we receive a lot of early dismissal requests in the last 15 minutes of school, which is very disruptive to individual classrooms and the office. Please do not arrange for an early dismissal within the last 15 minutes of school.
If you must make an early dismissal request during lunch, please allot extra time, as it is very difficult to locate students at lunch. We are unable to make an all-call because other classes are still in session during both lunches. If it is absolutely necessary to pull your student out of school early during the lunch period, please CALL AHEAD so that we can notify your student before lunch, so it won't take as long to find your student.
Volunteer Information for 2022-2023 School Year
