Students may arrive as early as 7:30 am. Staff will supervise children in the Gym from 7:30-7:40 am. Students wishing to have breakfast in the cafeteria will be escorted there by staff at 7:30. The rest of the students will be escorted up to the playground at 7:40. Staff will supervise students in the cafeteria starting at 7:30 am and on the playground starting at 7:40. 

The first bell rings at 7:55 am. At that time, teachers meet their students outside the cafeteria and lead them to their classrooms. The 2nd bell rings at 8:00 am. Students are expected to be at their desks at 8:00 am.

Dismissal is at 3:00 pm every day except for Friday. Friday dismissal is at 12:40 pm. At dismissal time, teachers lead their students to the sidewalk at the front of the school. Students who take the bus are supervised in the bus stop area. Students being picked up are supervised in their grade-level areas on the sidewalk. Grade-level areas are marked with signs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and K. 

Cars will be directed to pull forward; students will be called from their grade-level areas when their rides arrive.

Student safety is our priority!
