    Be On Time

    Each morning instruction begins promptly at 7:55 am and students are dismissed from class at 2:05 pm. Every morning at 7:50 is the "first bell" signaling that the students have 5 minutes to get to class. Students must be in the classroom by 7:55 at the "final/second bell" to be counted on time. If your child arrives to class after the second bell at 7:55 they will have an unexcused tardy but will not need a tardy slip from the office. If your child arrives in the classroom after ​7:55, they need to go to the front office to receive a late slip. Dismissal bell rings at 2:05. On early release days dismissal begins at 1:05.
