Morning Drop Off & After School Pick Up

Students are being dropped off much earlier than school start times. This is a reminder that there is no adult supervision prior to school starting. 

Parents and guardians are still responsible for students during this time.

We ask to please make accommodations for an adult to be with your child prior to school starting.

In addition, there has been an increase of students picked up later than 30 minutes after school. 

If you anticipate being more than 30 minutes late, a courtesy call to the school is required.

Unfortunately there is no after school supervision, so we ask families to please make accommodations to pick up their students at the end of school day. 

As a reminder school times is out at:

TK-3rd at 8:05am2:10 pm / 1:10 pm Wednesdays
4th-5th at 8:05am2:15 pm / 1:15 pm Wednesdays
