School Hours



School begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. Students arriving after 8:30 a.m. will be marked tardy. Students who ride the bus and arrive after 8:30 a.m. due to their bus arriving late, will not be counted tardy.


Buses will drop off and pick up students on the northeast side of the campus by the athletic fields.  Cars are not allowed to enter this area.  Students who arrive by bus are to walk directly to the area assigned to them.  In the afternoon, bus students will be dismissed from their classes directly to their buses.


Students arriving or leaving by car must use the driveway in front of the school. Students are not to be dropped off at school before 7:50 a.m.  There is no supervision provided before that time.  Upon arrival, students are to enter through the front of the school and proceed to their appropriate area.  Students being picked up by their parents will be dismissed through the front of the school at 3:40 p.m.  Parents must pick up their children by 4:00 p.m.  No supervision is provided beyond this time. Students who walk must enter the campus through the main entrance.  No students are to enter or leave the campus through the back or side areas of the campus.  Walkers will be dismissed with the car riders at 3:40p.m. If students are not picked up by     4:00 p.m., they must report to the front office.




Bus transportation is a convenience, and in order for it to function properly, full cooperation between parent, student and school personnel is necessary.  Students must ride their assigned bus. The transportation department determines bus routes and riding assignments. Students who disrupt the safe and orderly transportation standards of the bus may have their riding privileges revoked.
