Helpful Information-


SCHOOL HOURS: 8:30 AM- 3:03 PM In the interest of safety, please do not drop off your children before 8:00 AM, as there is no supervision before that time. Also, please be sure to pick up your children by 3:03 PM in the afternoon.

ARRIVAL TIMES: Our school day begins at 8:30 AM every day. Please be sure to have your child/children here on time. Students who are consistently tardy are at a clear disadvantage and usually arrive feeling frantic and unprepared. All students who arrive after 8:30 AM must sign in at the office with a parent. If your child will not be present, please call and inform the attendance office at (224) 303-1500.
