Please help us keep your child safe and do not leave them on school grounds unsupervised prior to 7:30a.m.  It is important to give enough time to eat breakfast. It is imperative that all children arrive prior to the start of school.  In order to ensure academic success and continuity in your child’s education, and to provide all children with the least disruptive learning environment, it is critical that students arrive on time and stay until dismissal time at 2:05 p.m.  The first bell rings at 7:50 a.m. indicating that it is time to be in line and heading to class.  The second bell rings at 7:55 a.m. indicating that instruction has begun.  If you are not in class at 7:55 a.m. you are tardy, and you must go directly to the office to sign to be admitted to class.


If your child must be dismissed before the end of the school day please send a written note.  All early dismissals must be scheduled before 1:45PM. All children being picked up prior to the end of the school day will be dismissed only from the front office after being signed out by a responsible adult. Please do not pick your child up directly from their classroom.
