If your student is a walker, please encourage them to arrive on campus no earlier than 8:45.

Drop off  for all students, Kindergarten through Sixth grade, will begin when staff members exit the building for duty. This will take place promptly at 8:45 am each morning.  

If you arrive prior to this time, please pull forward as far in the drop off areas as possible and wait for further staff direction.

Make sure your student has their belongings ready to exit your vehicle prior to entering the school parking lot.

Once you student has exited your vehicle, please stay in the line to leave campus.

Car Pick Up (Front of Building):

Dismissal for students in grades 1-6 will begin at 3:35. If a student has not been picked up by 3:45, they will be brought into the main office and a parent/guardian will need to enter office and sign them out from there. Kindergarten procedures will be shared with families during one on one’s scheduled with child’s teacher.
