Arrival time begins at 7 a.m. and ends at 7:55 a.m. All children are to be dropped off in the rear of the school from the Douthit Street entrance. If arriving after 7:55 a.m., park in front of school and take student(s) inside of the school at the front entrance. Dismissal begins at 3:00 p.m. on full days and at 12:30 p.m. on half days.

K3-K5 students are dismissed in the rear of the school at the Dohthit Street door. All other grades are dismissed in the front of the school, except for the students who have siblings in K3-K5. These older siblings leave with their younger siblings in the rear of the school.

Students who are enrolled in after school activities must be picked up by 6 p.m. Any student who is present after this time will be assessed a charge of $10 per child for the first 30 minutes. Each minute thereafter will be charged at the rate of $1 per minute per child. Fore more information on Early Stay/Late Stay, visit the Extended Care Program Page.

Be your child’s best example. Please refrain from texting or talking on cell phones while on school grounds. Obey all traffic and parking laws and follow all instructions of safety patrols, faculty and staff members.
