    Morning drop off time begins at 7:45.  Students must be in classrooms by 8:10.  Afternoon dismissal is 2:45 and students must be picked up no later than 3pm.  Thank you for having                                        your child at school on time.
   New Car Line Safety ProcedureIn order to ensure all children are safely sent home with the correct caregivers, we are asking that each adult picking up a child in the carline have a school issued car tag visible in their front dash.  If an adult comes to pick up a child without a tag, we will politely ask him or her to come inside the office to sign out the student.  Each family has been given 2 of these tags.  If you need more tags, please visit the office. Thank you for helping us to ensure the     safest environment for your child! 
Important……Be sure to keep us up to date with your current contact info throughout the year!
