We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

We encourage families to get involved in their child’s education. There are many opportunities to help; volunteer in a classroom, in the library, or join and participate in our Parent Club to name a few.

A few things to remember to make our year go more smoothly:

  • Students may arrive on campus no earlier than 7:45 am.
  • Our school office is open daily from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
  • Any changes in a student’s transportation home must be called in at least 30 minutes prior to dismissal.
  • School begins promptly at 8:25 a.m. You set your child up for success by getting him/her to school on time, every day.
  • See the 2022-23 Bell Schedule above. Please save this schedule, as the minimum days for the year are listed on the bottom. Just a reminder, dismissal time is 1:15 p.m. on minimum days.
  • As a reminder, the traffic flow in the school parking lot is counterclockwise; the passenger door always opens to the curb for safety reasons. If you must park your car during the pick-up time, make sure to park legally; be aware of blocking our entrance and exit lanes. Only vehicles displaying a handicapped placard/plate may park in the designated spaces next to the office.  While in the pick-up lane, you must remain in your vehicle.
  • A copy of the dress code is linked above. Chaperones and volunteers are requested to adhere to this dress code.
