Early and Late Pick-Up

We continue to experience a high number of parents picking up students before the 4pm dismissal time.  Parents, early dismissal disrupts the learning environment of your child and their peers.  It would also be helpful if parents would wait outside of the building or participate in the pick up system to pick up their child after school.  It is equally important that all students are picked up by 4:20 p.m. If a student is picked up after that time, an after care fee may be assessed. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. 



Parents it is important that your child is in school daily and on time.  Every minute of the day counts towards providing the best educational experience for your child.  Let’s work together to make sure your child is here on time by 8:25 am.  If you want your child to have breakfast at the school, they must arrive between 8:00am-8:20am.
