Tuesday 8:30 AM - 3:20 PM

Friday 8:30 AM - 3:20 PM

Office hours are 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday through Friday. 

Children should not arrive on the school grounds earlier than 8:20 AM. Schools are not responsible for outside supervision prior to 8:20 AM. The only exceptions are for those students attending before school programs, vocal and instrumental music rehearsals, or Student Council meetings. The first bell rings at 8:30 AM, at which time children are invited to enter the building by class.

Children are considered tardy if they arrive after the 8:35 AM late bell. Tardy records appear on your child's report card and are therefore part of your permanent record.
