Reminder: Make sure your students have time to get to class!

Posted on Aug. 21 2015 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
A reminder for parents dropping their students off in the morning:

Please be sure your students are here by 7:40 a.m. each day. This allows them five minutes to get to class, turn in homework and prepare prior to the tardy bell at 7:45 a.m.

Students who eat breakfast at school need to arrive earlier to allow them time to eat before going to class at 7:40 a.m.

Our front doors open at 7:20 a.m. each morning. Please help us make sure that all of our students are ready to begin learning at 7:45 a.m. each day!
