● Be on time for arrival and dismissal. School begins at 8:10am and ends at 2:45 pm.
● Students must be on time daily. Arrival doors and gates will close at 8:15am. Tardiness makes transition to the classroom difficult.
● Late arriving students will wait outside until staff transitions to the front door. Considering that the doors and gates allow 5 extra minutes to help with tardiness, we ask that you do your best to be on time daily to arrive at your respective arrival points.
