Arrival and Departure

Elementary Campus:

School begins at 8:05 a.m.  For safety concerns, parents should not drop any student off prior to 8:00 a.m.

For the safety and overall welfare of our students, we will not release a student on the basis of a phone call.  However, please send a signed note with the student alerting us to the time a student will be checked out of school, so we can prepare for the student’s departure.

To avoid disruptions to the academic day, early checkouts end at 2:45 p.m. at the Elementary School Campus.
