    Bell Schedule: 

    • Doors open at 7:00 am. 

    • Breakfast is served until 7:25. 

    • School starts and the tardy bell rings at 7:30. The car rider line doors will close at 7:30 - You will need to drop your child off at the front of the school if you arrive after that.

    • Students may walk to class starting at 7:15. 


    • Attendance is taken at 10:00 am each morning.  If your student is not in the school at this time, they will be counted absent for the day. 

    • Anytime your student is absent, please send an email/doctor’s note to the attendance clerk, Deborah Wilson, at The note should include student’s name, student id#, date(s) of absence and reason for absence. Please note that we need an excuse anytime and for any reason your student is absent.  

    • If your student is absent due to fever, they must be fever-free for 24 hours without the use of medication to be cleared to return to school. 

    • Doctor’s appointments are inevitable, but we do ask that doctor’s notes be provided for any absence resulting from one. **If your student is present on campus at any point during a school day, AND a doctor’s note is provided, the absence will be rescinded. 

    • Absences cannot be future coded. Anytime your student is absent, you will receive the automated attendance message (even if an email was sent before attendance was taken.) The attendance clerk will re-code absences after attendance is taken. 


    • Visitors can have lunch with students in the cafeteria, and MUST be on the student’s approved visitor list. You must stop at the front office with proper ID and receive your visitor sticker first. Report to the cafeteria to meet your child - only your child may sit with you – then check out with the front office when lunch has concluded. Classroom hallways are NOT OPEN to visitors during instructional time 7:30 – 2:55.

    • School gets out at 2:55 pm.
