Hours Of Operation
ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL OF STUDENTS
Students should arrive no earlier than 7:30 a.m. Breakfast is from 7:30 a.m. until 7:55 a.m. Students must be on time and in the classroom to begin instruction at 8:00 a.m. Daily dismissal is at 2:45 p.m. (WEDNESDAY DISMISSAL IS 1:30 P.M. FOR EARLY RELEASE DAY). It is imperative that the students are picked up on time. However, please do not pick-up your children before the end of the assigned school day. This jeopardizes the students’ education and they are not fulfilling the number of minutes required by the state for promotion to the next grade.
NO supervision is provided for students after school hours unless they are in a special after school program. PLEASE DO NOT DOUBLE PARK ON OR AROUND THE SCHOOL CAMPUS during dismissal. This is an extremely dangerous practice for all students and parents. Please park your car across the street. DO NOT park in front of the school or in the school bus parking area. Please take the time to walk across the street, pick up your student and walk him/her safely back across the street. Please be considerate of other vehicles when coming or leaving the school, especially during the dismissal time.
