Policies and Programs

Morning Information

Students should not be dropped off before 7:15 am. There is no supervision available during this time. If you would like your child to eat breakfast at school, they need to arrive by 7:50am. This will allow them to eat as well as make it to class on time.

Parent Pickup

If you pick up your child, please arrive no later than 2:40 p.m.  We close the back door at that time, and take students upstairs to the office because the duty for pick-up personnel ends at that time.  Our office is too small to accommodate a large number of students.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Parent Pickup Procedures



Building doors remained locked at all times for the safety and protection of our students and staff. All visitors must be buzzed in through the front doors and report to the office to sign in and receive a visitor pass. To preserve the learning environment within the classrooms, we require an appointment to be made in advance for all observations within the classroom. Please see someone in the office to make an appointment and fill out the appropriate paperwork.
