Attention Car riders  

Students are not to be dropped off at school before 7:45 a.m. Do not drop students off in the parking area behind the gym to walk in by themselves. These are safety concerns. The car rider line closes daily at 8:15 (when the tardy bell rings). Students must report to the office for a tardy slip. Students should be picked up at 2:55 in the gym or car rider line at dismissal. Please do not go to the classroom to pick up your child.                      

Attention Bus Riders!

If your K-2 child rides a bus, an adult must be at the bus stop when we drop them off.  We cannot leave a K-2 student at the bus stop if the assigned adult is not at the stop. Bus drivers will bring the student back to the school for you to pick up if no one is at the address.If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Martin, Assistant Principal. 

**Transportation changes will not be accepted over the phone.  Please send a written note with your student or come by the office to make a change.

**Students who have appointments such as doctor/dentist appointments, need to be signed out in the office by 2:30 p.m. Do not go directly to the classroom.  We will not sign students out after 2:30 p.m. as we finish the instructional day and prepare for dismissal.
