SCHOOL HOURS

School is in session from 8:25 a.m. to 2:40 p.m. Buses start arriving on the circle in the morning around 7:50 a.m. The buses park in the circle and unload students as a group. The buses typically leave the circle between 8:05 and 8:10 a.m. ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

STUDENT OFF & PICK UP PROCEDURES

The safety of our students is paramount. The bus circle in front of our school is a one-way lane. Parents must not enter the circle when the red light is on and buses are present in the circle and parking lot.

Parent who are dropping off their children must wait until all buses have left the school parking lot.

At the end of the day, students are released by a bell at 2:40 p.m. Parent pickup is after the buses; to enter the circle, they must wait until after the red light is off and the buses have left the parking lot.

Does your child need to take a bus some place other than home? Is your child going to a friend's house after school and in need of a bus permission slip? For information about bus transportation follow these links: [CHILDCARE & PARENT] [TRANSPORT FORM] [BUS SLIP INSTRUCTIONS] and [BUS SLIP FORMS].

SCHOOL SAFETY

School safety is a high priority. All visitors must ring the bell outside the main entrance to enter the building. Any student who is late to school must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to the main office for a late sign in.

Anyone visiting our school must report directly to the main office to sign in and receive a visitor's pass.

SIGNING OUT A SICK CHILD

  • Parents must report to the main office, sign-in, and prepare a bus slip or present the pre-assigned purple pass to the attendance clerk, Mrs. Boyd.
