The last PE class ends at 2:05 pm. After the students are picked up, the tables are set down for secure pick up. The purpose of the tables is to control the proper release of students to adults. Without a barrier, children may run to an adult they recognize- defeating the purpose of secure pick up.
It is our goal to open the gym doors at 2:10 pm daily. Thank you.
The gym doors open at 7:15 am or a little earlier depending on the bus arrivals. School begins at 7:35 AM. Therefore, the cut-off time for breakfast is 7:30. However, if a school bus is late, the breakfast time is extended. Parents, if you drop off your child for school and would like them to eat breakfast, please have them here before 7:30 AM.
For security, the gym doors are locked after the bell (7:35 AM). If your child arrives after the bell, they will need to come through the front doors in order to get a tardy slip.
