Arrival at School

School Hours: Due to scheduled supervision, students should not arrive at school until 7:00 am. No students should be on campus before 7:00 am.

Students wishing to eat breakfast should report directly to the school cafeteria, except for Pre-K students. Pre-K should report to the Pre-K paraprofessional on duty in the gym. Those choosing not to eat breakfast should report to their designated area until dismissed by personnel on duty.

Our school day instruction begins at 7:45 and ends at 2:30. Any student arriving after 7:45 am will be considered tardy and must go by the Office for a Tardy Slip for class.


All students who do not ride the bus to or from school should be dropped off and picked up at the side parking lot at the back of the gym. Because we often schedule meetings and training sessions for our staff, all students should be picked up before 2:40 pm. Please remain in your vehicle, stay in line and do not call students to come to you.  Student safety is our primary concern!

School attendance is one of the keys to academic success. Parents can  help their children succeed by encouraging school attendance. If an emergency absence is necessary (such as an illness), a note from a parent should be sent to the school. The note should include the student's name, the date of the absence, the reason for the absence and the parent's signature.If a child must leave school during the day, a parent or guardian must sign the child out in the office.  AT NO TIME may a student leave campus without permission. Students must remain at school until 11:30 AM to be counted present. A student must arrive by 11:30 AM to be counted present. Our school will be rated as exemplary, satisfactory, or unsatisfactory by the Office of Accountability based upon student attendance.  Students who come to school each day will be recognized for their accomplishments each month.  Students missing more than 20 days within one quarter their parent or guardian will be contacted by Mrs. Angie Kling, the school’s Social Worker. If the student continues to miss school The Compulsory Attendance Law will be enforced through the District Attorney’s office in the case of excessive unexcused absences.
