Arrival Time for Students

Students are allowed to enter the school at 8:54 a.m. Prior to this student arrival time teachers are preparing for students and attending staff meetings. No supervision is available for students. If your child attends Adventure Club he or she may enter the building​ earlier.​


The school office and your child's teacher need a note for any change in a student’s dismissal. For example, If your child is walking home instead of taking the bus home, we must have a note from you. Also, please inform us if you intend to pick your child up at the end of the day.

Early Dismissal and Late Arrivals

Sometimes it is necessary for a parent/guardian to pick up a child during the school day for dental or doctor appointments, etc. In such circumstances, parents/guardians must check in at the office and sign the student out. Students who are returned to school after their appointments, or students who are driven to school and arrive after the start of the school day, must have their parents/guardian sign them in.​
