School Arrivals and Departures

•       School begins at 7:55 and ends at 3:20 P.M.

•       Students should NOT arrive at school before 7:15 A.M. We cannot assume responsibility for students who arrive at school before this time.

•       Students who eat breakfast in the cafeteria should be at school by 7:40 A.M. They go directly to the cafeteria as soon as they get off the bus. Students are not allowed in the building until the 7:55 bell rings.

•       Students who ride in cars dismiss at 3:20 P.M. Buses will follow car pickup. Please do not check your child out early except in cases of after school appointments or other emergencies. All parents should use the car line to pick up your child instead of coming into the schoolyard or classroom to walk them across the street. Students who leave the school early at anytime MUST check out in the office. Parents please remember that checkouts go against attendance.(See new attendance policy) These precautions will cut down on the possibility of an accident happening and cut down on traffic problems.

•       Make sure your child knows before he/she leaves home whether he/she is to ride the bus, be a car pick up, etc. Send a note with your child anytime he/she is to go somewhere different, or leave school in a way other than his/her usual way in the afternoon. Parents who pick students up during the day must stop in the office to sign students out. DO NOT go to the classroom. It is very important that class instruction is NOT interrupted. This is a disservice for ALL students. It is also a necessary safety measure for your child/children. Children may leave school with their parents ONLY. If you want anyone else to check your children out of school, you must come by the office and sign a form giving your permission. This is NECESSARY. Students will NOT be allowed to leave with someone not on their checkout list. In cases of emergencies please talk with the principal for the necessary arrangements to be made.
