Time school starts

The beginning time of each school day is changing this year to 8:15 a.m. School doors will open at 7:55 a.m. so students can enter the building. K-6 students will go to the cafeteria where breakfast will be offered. Grades 7-12 students can choose a breakfast-to-go at their end of the building.

The first morning bell will ring at 8:10 a.m. This is indicator for students to head to their classrooms to be prepared for class. Students need to be in their classrooms or first hour by 8:15 a.m.


Arrival 7:50-8:10 a.m. & Dismissal 3:04 p.m.

Buses

• Arrival & Dismissal: Buses will continue to drop off students in front of the school on the

south end of the driveway. (same as last year)

front main entrance by the library.


Parent Drop-Off/Pick Up

• Arrival: Parents dropping off students by car will continue to do so at the back of the

building. Unless more restrictions become mandated again, this year parents may park

behind the building and enter with their students to the cafeteria. Kindergarten teachers will meet students in the cafeteria and elective teachers will be assisting first grade students to classrooms.

• Dismissal: Since safety of our students is the #1 priority, the same procedure will be followed as for last school year. Parents will pick up their child/children in the back of the school by car or in person, allowing for a safe and direct connection with parents/guardians.
