School officially begins at 8:15 am. If you are driving your student to school in the morning, please remember that the building does not open until 8:00 am.Teachers are in morning meetings from 7:30 until 8:00. Therefore, there are no adults to supervise the students until that time. If you arrive prior to 8:00 am, the student should remain in the car until the doors open. Students can enter the building at the designated areas from 8:00-8:15 and go directly to homeroom.
All 6th graders (Bus, Walkers & Car Riders) enter through the main lobby.
7th grade & 8th grade walkers and riders will enter the rear of the building in the G Wing entry. Teachers will be there to guide them to homeroom.
7th & 8th grade bus riders enter the Natatorium side of the building at the entrance to the 8th grade hallway and are guided to their homerooms.
All students must leave the premises after school unless under the direct supervision of a faculty member.

The only legitimate excuses for being late for school are doctor and dentist appointments or illness of the student. Oversleeping, missing the bus, mechanical difficulties, etc. are not considered legitimate reasons for being late for school. Students must hand in doctor’s notes to the attendance office when coming in late to school. The doctor’s notes will not be accepted at a later date.
It is expected that all efforts will be made to schedule appointments during non-school hours. However, it is also understood that events occur for which we are unable to prepare. If an early dismissal is needed, requests must be made in written form from a parent/guardian and the note should contain the parent’s phone number, time and date of dismissal, and the reason for the dismissal.
