Please park in the visitor parking in the southwest corner of the front of the building. You will enter the front of the building to be buzzed inside. At this point, your child's classroom will be radioed so that a staff member can obtain your child. A child is tardy 1 minute after the start of the day. Families will be required to sign a tardy slip upon bringing their child(ren) to school late.

Please call ahead if you have a specific pick-up time...
At the start of the school year, parents/guardians will inform the office regarding being a bus rider or car rider at the end of the school day. If this plan changes on any given day, parents should notify the office in writing or by phone. Changes in departure plans will only be made if the parent has notified the school office. The child will be sent home in their usual way unless previously arranged by the parent/guardian.  If it is less than 15 minutes before normal dismissal, students will be dismissed through the car rider line.
