Morning Arrival:

Students should not arrive unattended on the playground before 8:15 a.m.

All students will enter the gym through the playground or Queen City Ave doors beginning at 8:15 a.m. Students who will be eating breakfast will enter first, followed by those going directly to class.

Students arriving after the 8:25 a.m. bell are tardy and must report to the office through the main door.


If there is to be a temporary or permanent change to a student's method of release, parents must notify the school in writing the morning the change is to take place.
