What are the hours for students?
The student instructional day begins at 8:30 am and runs until 3:15 pm.
What are the office hours?
The office is open from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm.
Where is the parent drop off and pick up area?
Parent drop off and pick up occurs in front of the building in our car loop. In the morning, drop off begins at 8:20, unless your child is participating in a before school activity. As cars pull up and stop, students from the first six cars should exit and enter the school. In the afternoon, we follow the same procedure. If you do want to park your car, please plan to be at the school by 2:50. After that time, we close off the parking area to simplify the traffic flow at the end of the day.
If my child is ill and will be absent, what should I do?
If your child is absent or tardy for any reason, you must inform the school. The simplest way is to call our attendance line (291-2703), which is available 24 hours a day.
What if my child's dismissal plans change?
Please be sure that your child knows of his or her dismissal plans before the school day begins, as well as back-up plans in the event of inclement weather. Dismissal plans need to be entered into our Dismissal Manager prior to 1:00 p.m. and can be done up to two weeks in advance. Please refrain from calling the office for dismissal changes. Changes will be accepted by phone only in cases of emergency.
I have academic concerns for my child, or, I am concerned about something I heard that happened on the playground, who do I contact?
The first point of contact for concerns regarding your child's academics or other school related issues should be the classroom teacher. The classroom teacher has the most frequent contact with your child and should be able to work with you on the issue. On occasion, the teacher may want to involve the principal or assistant principal, or members of our mental health team.
I have a concern about something that happened on the bus, who do I contact?
In the case of bus issues, please contact the assistant principal.
