On Time Arrival
Parents, please help us get school started on time! The first class begins at 8:10. Students should arrive to school early enough to be in the classroom by 8:10 ready to learn. Now that the year is well underway, we are seeing an increase in the number of students who are arriving late in the morning, which impacts their instructional time and interrupts classes when they enter late. Thank you!
