Early Dismissals

The early dismissal cut-off time is 1:45 p.m. - NO EXCEPTIONS!  Parents/Guardians requesting early dismissal for a student will be required to present a government issued ID before a student can be dismissed. Students can only be released to authorized individuals listed on the SchoolMax account. Please take a moment to review your child’s SchoolMax account and update if necessary.

Item or Food Drop-Offs

Item (i.e., cell phones, Chromebooks, clothing, etc.) and food drop offs to students during the school day are prohibited. Please encourage your child to remember to bring any required items with them to school.

Main Office Hours

Meeting with Administration

Hours to meet with your child's administrator will be from 8:30 am – 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Scheduling an appointment with the appropriate administrator is strongly encouraged.

Student Drop Offs - Driving on Campus

Student safety is our top priority. With an increasing number of car riders it is vitally important to follow rules of safety and comply with direct insruction given by school personnel.

To assist school personnel who are directing traffic in the morning we ask all drivers to:

  • Take note of the posted speed limits
  • Practice patience when dropping off and picking up your student
  • Refrain from dropping students off across the street from the school. This requires students to walk into heavy traffic.
After School Pick-Up

The school day ends at 2:25 p.m. Unless scholars are involved in an after-school activity, they are required to leave the building. Scholars going to an after-school activity must be with a teacher/sponsor within 15 minutes of dismissal. If a scholar is waiting for a ride, they must remain in the school's front lobby. When scholars finish their after-school activity, we expect their ride to pick them up within 10-15 minutes. Parents'/guardians' attention to this matter is most appreciated.
