Our school hours are 8:30am to 3:40pm every day. Please do not drop students off at school before 8:15am, as there is no supervision before this time. On the first day of school, Kindergarten parents are welcome to walk their child to class and stay until 9:30am. August 4th and 5th, Kindergarten students will meet their teacher on the grassy area directly in front of the school and will enter through the front doors with their class. Kindergarten teachers will be ready outside to greet students at 8:15am each of these mornings. The purpose of this exception is to ease our Kindergarten students into our regular student morning routine.
Assessment Day August 12th
We will be conducting literacy assessments on Friday, August 12th for all K-5 students. Students will only attend during a scheduled appointment time on this day. These assessments are designed to assist each classroom teacher with the implementation of skill-based reading groups to meet the needs of each child in order to maximize your child’s growth this year. We appreciate your support in setting up your child(ren) for success in literacy this year! Teachers will have a sign-up sheet for assessment day time slots during Open House or will send an email invite.
