What time does the school day begin and end?


  • School will begin at 7:45 am.  Teachers will begin walking students in from the white top at 7:35 am SHARP.  Students arriving after 7:45 am will be considered tardy and need to pick up a tardy slip from the front office BEFORE going to their classroom.  Pick up on the white top is 3:00 pm.  Please pick up your children in a timely manner as many teachers need to return to their classrooms for clean-up and/or tutoring.
