    Arrival and Departure

    Students will be welcomed into school when the 8:40 am bell rings unless they are eating breakfast at school. Students will not be allowed on our campus before 8:30 am due to lack of adult supervision. For students who ride the bus, when the first bus arrives, students may enter the building and proceed to their classrooms.

    If you need to pick up your child early, you must do it before 3pm.  Between 3pm and 3:15pm we are in the middle of end-of-day routines. Thank you for understanding.

    Late Arrivals

    Students who arrive late for any reason (except a late bus or safety patrol duty) must be checked in by a parent or guardian from the vestibule before going to their classroom.

    Early Dismissal

    For excused absences during the day, such as for doctor or dental appointments, students are expected to bring a written note stating the times they are to be excused.

    • A family member must pick up and sign out their student by swiping their driver's license in the vestibule.
    • If a student is returning to school from an appointment, he or she must be checked in by a parent or guardian from the vestibule before returning to their classroom.
