Frequently Asked Questions

1.What time does school start in the morning and when does school let out?
Students should line up on the playground in the morning and be ready to start classes at 8:05 AM. Tardies count against perfect attendance. This could jeopardize your chance at a free bike at the end of the school year.
Students will be dismissed at 3:05 PM except on Friday. Friday dismissal is at 11:55 AM.
2. My child will be late getting to school in the morning, what notifications should I make?
If your child is going to be late and wishes to be counted for hot lunch, you must call the school office by 9:00 A.M. If you cannot call before 9:00 A.M., please send a cold lunch to school with your child. In all cases please try calling the school as soon as possible.
3. My child is sick and won’t be in school today, what notifications should I make?
The child’s parents or guardians should call the school office as early in the morning as possible so that the absence is excused. Feel free to leave a message on the school’s answering machine. If it’s not possible to contact the school office the day of absence please send a note to school the following day.

A single meal ticket costs $2.60. Single Milk is $0.35. Students use debit cards and money should be deposited into their accounts. The same debit card is used for milk.
