During the school office hours, parents and visitors can get assistance from office staff either by telephone or in person.
Student Arrival: NO EARLIER than 7:15 a.m.
Students cannot arrive to school before 7:15 a.m., as there is no adult supervision for your child prior to that time. Your child arriving to school prior to 7:15 a.m. jeopardizes their safety.

Only those students who are eating breakfast will be allowed into the lunchroom during this time. Any students who arrive after 7:40a.m. will NOT be served a school breakfast in order to avoid a classroom disruptions.
Tardiness: AFTER 7:55 a.m.
School starts at 7:40 a.m. Any student who arrives after 7:55 a.m. is considered tardy and must report immediately to the office and receive a tardy pass. Tardy students will not be accepted into class without a pass from the office. Students who repeatedly come to school late may be reported to the Department of Children & Family Services.
Student Dismissal: 2:05 p.m. (Grades K-3) 2:10 p.m. (Grades 4-8)
Kindergarten students who will be picked up by a sibling should be picked up in the auditorium. Students in grades 1-4 will exit out of the main exit doors. Students in grades 5-8 should exit out of the northeast doors. Parents will not be allowed to enter the building during dismissal and should wait outside at their child's designated dismissal area to meet their child. This school policy is necessary to maximize the safety of all our students. If there is a need to speak to the principal or assistant principal, please call the main office to schedule an appointment at a later date as the principal's focus at this time is a safe and orderly dismissal.

Parents who repeatedly pick their child up early from school may be reported to the Department of Children & Family Services.
