Hours of Instruction

Grade 1-4 

Soft Start

Our soft start (from 7:45 – 8:00 AM) means that students have plenty of time to get into school by 8:00 AM for start time. After 8:00 AM doors are closed so teachers can begin instruction on time. Students who arrive late will have to enter the school at the main office to receive a late slip. Please help set your child up for success each day by arriving before 8:00 AM. Thank you for your continued support.

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​
