AM Arrival… Thank you getting students to school on time each morning, and on the occasion when students are running late or have an appointment that requires them to arrive to school after the start time, we appreciate parents signing them in at the Main Office. Please know that staff leave their assigned posts (front/back door walkers and car line) at 9:05 AM Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays, and Fridays and 9:15 AM on Wednesdays to get to their classes. If your student is arriving at or after the bell, we ask that you pull around to the circle drive and come into the front office to sign your student in. Staff are unable to bring students in with them after the bell. Thank you!
