Arrival Times Changing After Break!


  • Buses and cars can begin dropping off at 8:45 (not 8:50). We hope the additional time will allow students to get to their grade level doors and inside for the start of class on time.
  • Doors will open for students at 8:50. For students who arrive at 8:45, they will simply wait outside until a staff member arrives to welcome students in at 8:50. If it is raining, we will open the doors so that students can come out of the rain and wait by their classroom until 8:50.

We really need the support of our families to make sure students arrive to school on time. I know how difficult mornings can be --- consider planning to arrive/leave 5 minutes earlier than you think you'll need. While we are happy to welcome our students even if they are dropped off late, many students share that it is extra stressful to enter their classrooms when the rest of their class is together and have started for the day. This holds true for our remote learners who also need to "arrive" on Zoom on time for the start of their day. Thanks for your help!!
