Arrival and Departure

Arrival Information

Families are requested not to send students until 8:40 am, unless students are eating breakfast. This is for your protection as there is no supervision until 8:40 am.  Breakfast is served at 8:30 am. If your student is arriving early for breakfast they should report directly to the cafeteria and stay in the cafeteria until 8:40 am. When students arrive at school for the day they need to be in the cafeteria or on the playground. 

Departure Information

Children will not be allowed to leave before the regular dismissal time unless a parent or guardian checks out the student in the office.  No child can be allowed to walk home during school hours.  Children can be checked out for appointments through the front office.  Students can only be released to names of contacts on their student cards. Picture ID's (Driver's licenses, state IDs, etc.) will be required for early pickup. Please do not request that the office have your student ready for you to pick up; we are unable to call a student to the office until the parent/guardian has arrived and signed the student out through the office.

Pickups

School ends at 3:45 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and at 1:00 pm on Wednesdays. We encourage parents and guardians to pick up students on time.  School officials will wait outside with students until 4:00 pm and then students will be brought into the office.  In these cases, a person authorized to pick up your child must present a valid ID and sign your child out in the office.
