  • August 17th was set as the last day for parents to walk students to class each morning. Please utilize the parent drop-off area in the back of the building from 7:00 - 7:45 a.m.
  • Students who are dropped off as car riders must arrive before 7:40 if they are eating breakfast at school. Students must be in their classrooms each morning by 7:50; arrivals after 7:50 a.m. are considered tardy to school.
  • Please utilize Parent Pickup in the rear of the building each afternoon (2:35-3:05) rather than coming to the office and signing out students (except in emergency situations).
  • If a student is absent from school, a note must be sent to school on the day the student returns.
