School starts at 8:10 am. A child is considered tardy when he/ she gets to school after 8:10 AM and leaves school before 3:05 PM. 

A student is considered a habitual truant when he/ she has more than six (6) un-excused events; tardies or full days.  Parents can use 6 parent notes and 10 Dr. notes to excuse an absence. Excuses need to be turned within 5 days of the absence

All parent drop off in the mornings is at the gym doors.  Parents, please be patient, we unload over 220 cars every morning. Your help would be greatly appreciated by having your student ready to get out; mask on, backpack ready, student at the correct side of the car for the drop off.  

Staff is outside to help your child when they get out of the car. Please do not hold up the line by getting out of the car to help your child. We are trying to unload 5 cars at the time. 

Parents should not use the staff parking lot to unload students and walk them across the bus road to get to the gym. This is a safety hazard for your child and yourself.
