First Day of Classes

The first day of classes for Grades 1-6 is Wednesday, September 1, 2021.  Teachers will meet students, parents/guardians and other caregivers outside near their grade based designated entry/exit doors. (Please see the map below indicating the grade based entry/exit doors.)  Following the first day of school, we will offer a soft morning entry as described below under the heading School Start and End Times

Kindergarten

Kindergarten classes begin on Wednesday, Sept. 1 and Thursday, Sept. 2.  We will follow a staggered entry on both days.  On Friday September 3, 2021 there is no school for Kindergarten.  All Kindergarten children will attend AM/PM classes starting on Tuesday September 7, 2021.

Please watch for an email from your Kindergarten teacher explaining which day your child will attend.  Kindergarten children will use the garden doors.  (Please see the map below indicating the grade based entry/exit doors.)

School Start & End Times

Starting on Thursday, September 2, a soft morning entry will be implemented.  Soft entry sees students entering the school between 8:30 and 8:40 AM.  Please remember that our attendance bell rings at 8:40 AM.  Students will use their assigned doors for this purpose. 

Our attendance bell times are as follows:

Grades 1-6

Monday - Thursday

  • Morning 8:40 AM -12:04 PM 
  • 15 minute recess flexible by grade cohort
  • Lunch 12:04 -12:53 PM
  • Afternoon  12:55 - 3:20 PM

Alternate Friday

  • Early Dismissal – 8:40 AM - 12:50 PM
  • Includes Snack Time

Drop off & Pick up

There is very limited parking around the school.  If you plan to drive your students to school, please consider parking 1-3 blocks away from the building.  The curb side directly in front of the main entrance of the school on Chaparral Drive is a dedicated bus zone.  All other curb side parking is considered kiss and drive.  The residences across the street from the school feature large driveways that make parking very difficult.  It is extremely important that we respect the homeowners by NOT blocking their driveways.  Chapalina Close also becomes a busy spot at drop off.  Again, this is a kiss and drive zone, meaning curb side parking should not exceed 2 minutes.

Students should dismount and walk bikes and scooters once they reach the sidewalks around the school, on the school grounds, and in the crosswalks.

Parents/guardians must remain outside of the school to drop off their children.  They must not enter the school during high traffic times unless approved by the principal.

While we are hoping to reintroduce our Student Safety Patrols early in the fall, adult supervisors will continue monitor for safe crossing. 

School Supply Lists

Most of the supplies required by students in K-6 are provided by the school. Students will need the following personal items:

  • Snack (please try to send low to no garbage snacks)
  • Lunch (please remember to include utensils such as spoons and forks)
  • Water bottle
  • Back pack
  • Indoor shoes appropriate for Physical Education (i.e., running shoes that fit well and stay on the child’s feet).

***Please label all belongings with first name and last initial.

School Calendar

We are a school that follows the traditional calendar. View our calendar page for events and dates.

Noon Supervision 

Noon supervision will be available on the first day of school. The noon break runs from 12:04 -12:53 PM. Students will eat lunch in their classrooms. Please avoid sending any food items that contain nuts or nut products. Please also avoid sending food that requires heating, and remember to pack appropriate utensils. 


In alignment with CBE Administrative Regulation AR – 6005 Student Code of Conduct, students are expected to  demonstrate the same commitment to good citizenship as they do throughout their school day. 

Assigned Teachers

​​Yellow School Bus Tra​nsportation

Yellow school bus routes for the 2021-22 school year are created o​ver the summer and based on the addresses submitted before the pre-registration deadline in June. Transportation continues to accept registrations after the deadline; however, students are added to the closest existing stop with available space. Processing times could be up to six weeks at the beginning of the school year due to volume.

More information about 2021-22 transportation service levels and proposed fees are posted on the CBE website.

Your bus stop location and time will be available in your MyCBE / PowerSchool account by mid-August.

Conditional riders can also register using MyCBE / PowerSchool. Applications will be considered after eligible riders registrations have been processed.

Learn more about transportation on the CBE website.

We look forward to a great year ahead. If you have any questions that we haven’t addressed here, please contact the school.
