Students must arrive on time if eating breakfast.  Monday, August 15, is the first day of school for grades K-5.  The first day for pre-kindergarten students is August 17. On August 15 and 16, pre-k teachers and para-professionals will conduct home visits and they will complete testing for pre-k students who have not been tested.

Drop-off and Pick-up Procedures:  All car riders should be dropped off at the front entrance of the building in the mornings and picked up at the back entrance in the afternoons.  The school building opens at 6:50 a.m. Students should not arrive before 6:50 a.m. because the staff does not arrive prior to that time.

Administrators, teachers, and staff look forward to working with parents and students and to making the 2016-2017 school year one of the best ones yet.
