During the first six weeks of school, forgotten items may be dropped off at the office. After October 1st, the Responsibility Matters Policy will be instituted for the remainder of the school year. 

Items that are forgotten (i.e. backpacks, water bottles, hats, umbrellas, etc.) will not be delivered to classrooms to preserve the integrity of instructional minutes and limit classroom distractions.

Free school lunches and water are available to all students throughout the day.

Beginning the second week of school, students in grades TK, K, and 1st, will line up at their designated spot at the first bell (7:40 am) on the playground where they will be picked up by their teachers and walked to class at the 7:45 am bell.  At the 7:38 am bell, students grades 2, 3, 4, and 5, may enter the gates (from the playground and the bus loop) with access to campus.  Any parent or visitor wishing to enter campus must go through the school office to sign in and obtain an identification badge/sticker and wear at all times while on campus.
Students are expected to be at their line up spot (grades TK-1st) or classroom (grades 2-5) by the 7:45 am bell.  Students arriving after the 7:45 am bell must be signed in at the office.
It is important that students are picked up by 2:05 pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday, and by 12:25 pm on Thursday and minimum days as there is no supervision after-school.
