A Message From the Principal

It's finally starting to feel like spring!  As the weather gets warmer, we are noticing an increase in the number of students arriving late to school and leaving early.  Students are missing important instruction when they arrive late or leave early.  Our doors open at 9:05 for breakfast and 9:10 for everyone else.  Students should be in their seats by 9:25 which is when teachers begin instruction. At the end of the day, teachers begin preparing students for dismissal at 3:45 and instruction takes place right up to 3:45.

Please help your child get to bed (without technology) early enough to wake up and be to school at 9:10.  Students should only have an early dismissal for an occasional doctor's appointment.

Thank you,

Denise Lancaster, Principal
