AM Arrival

AS A REMINDER:  In an ongoing effort to keep your children safe, please be advised, that your child is not permitted to wait by the school entrance doors before 8:05; there is no supervision before this time.  Please note temperature drops with winter season and other weather concerns.

Also, documentation of names of students will be taken, that are waiting outside prior to 8:05.  Parents will be receiving the necessary contacts home as warnings.  

After School Concerns

  1. Please note that after our 3:00 pm dismissal, all car/walker students are under their parent's supervision.  Any child left without a parent is to report back into the building. These students will report to Aftercare, and the normal fees will apply.  Any student that remains in the parking lot must be under parent supervision. The school will not be held liable for students unattended.

  2. Students/Parents must use the CROSSWALK.  We were notified that students/parents are crossing throughout the streets, and must be using the designated crosswalks.
