We have staggered start times for grade levels, and a common release for all students at 3:00 pm.  Kindergarten classes begin at 9:00 am daily.  There will be supervision in the cafeteria and gym each morning beginning at 7:30 am.  We also have our after-school SAFE program with adult supervision from 3:00 – 6:00 pm.

Daily Arrival

School begins at 9:00 am each morning. Check-in at the office if arrival is 9:00 am or later. All kindergarten students must be walked to class by a parent or guardian. If a student arrives by bus or is dropped off early, they are to go directly to the cafeteria and then the gym. They will be chaperoned and brought to class as a group by an aide. Students are not to be wandering the campus or in classrooms before 9:00 am for safety purposes.
