Car Rider Area



Arrival time for students on our campus is 7:25AM.  All car riders MUST be dropped off and picked up in the designated car rider line. The location is off of Leon Street, in the back of school.    The walker gate is designated for neighborhood students only, who walk to school, and are escorted by a parent or older sibling. 

Students are allowed to enter campus until 7:55AM.  Anyone arriving after the 7:55AM bell will be considered tardy.  Parents must come into the office and sign-in their child in order to be admitted to class. 

Parents escorting their children to class before the 7:55AM bell do not need to sign-in with the office.  However, after the 7:55AM bell, parents should be off campus. Any parent still on campus needs to check-in with the office to obtain a visitors tag. This is to ensure the safety of all students. Instruction begins at 7:55AM.  If you need to speak to a teacher, a message can be left at the front office and the teacher will contact you during recess or after school.

Dismissal begins at 3:10 P.M..  We ask that if you need to check out your child from school early, you do so by 2:30 PM.  This avoids confusion at bell time. You will be asked for identification in order to verify permission to check out your child.  If your child will be going home in any other manner than what is documented, you must send your child to school with a note indicating the change.  Students without written documentation must take the normal transportation route home.
