Daily Schedule

Daily Schedule

Office hours are 7:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Students should not arrive before 7:25 a.m., as students are not allowed in the building before then.There is no supervision available until that time as teachers are prepping for classes and attending meetings, and students will need to wait outside if they arrive prior to 7:25 a.m.  Make sure that your children dress appropriately for the weather in the event that they need to wait outdoors for a few minutes in the morning.  If your child is a walker, make sure that they are not leaving the house too early to avoid an extended wait time. The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:25 p.m. We have a 3-day rotating specialist schedule (Physical Education, Media & Music). Click here for more details.
