Playground Supervision

Playground supervision begins 15 minutes before school starts (8:20 AM). All busses will wait for supervisors to arrive before dropping the students off. Should parents choose to drive their child to school, students should not be left unsupervised on the school grounds prior to 8:20 AM when supervision begins.

For security purposes, please note that the front door of the school is only open until 9:00 AM on school days. When arriving at the door, you will need to ring the doorbell and identify yourself before gaining entry to the building. For security reasons, all visitors to the school must check in at the main office upon arrival. All visitors will be asked to sign in and wear a visitor tag while in the school building.

Elementary students are required to stay on the playground during school hours unless they have been signed out by a parent or guardian. Junior High students are able to earn off campus privileges over the noon hour.
