The school day begins at 8:20 AM and ends at 2:55 PM. Students may enter the building when the signal sounds at 7:55 AM. At this time students will go directly to their classrooms where they will be supervised by their regular classroom teachers. There is no supervision prior to 7:55 AM therefore students are not allowed on school grounds without parental supervision or unless previously arranged by a teacher.
Families are encouraged to use the bus transportation provided by the district. Parents who choose to drive their children to school will use the south entrance (facing Thompson Road) parking lot. The south entrance will be supervised by a staff member from 7:55 AM to 8:15 AM only. After 8:15 AM students are required to enter through the main doors. Students who arrive after 8:20 AM are late and must be signed in by a parent.
DELAYED OPENING/EMERGENCY CLOSING INFORMATION
In the event school has a delayed opening (two hours is the standard time) or is closed because of bad weather or another emergency, announcements will be made. Information regarding school cancelation will be delivered automatically to parents through our automated messaging service. This service relies on the accuracy of the information provided by the parent at the time of their child’s enrollment. This information can be updated. For assistance, contact the school’s secretary who can assist you with this process. School closing information is also shared through local radio, television, or by accessing the school’s website. Please do not call the radio stations, police, schools or the superintendent.
Dismissal begins with announcements at 2:55 PM. Names are announced over the PA system for students whose parents called during the school day to change dismissal plans from the bus to parent pick up. All students should remain quiet while buses are called.
Parents who choose to pick up their children at the end of the school day will use the south entrance (facing Thompson Road) parking lot. Parents are required to sign out their children at the time of pickup. Parents who plan to pick up their child at the end of a specific day are asked to write a brief note or call the main office before 2:00 PM in order for the child’s name to be added to the dismissal list. If anyone other than a parent/guardian is picking up a student, a permission note is required prior to dismissal.
