AFTER SCHOOL PICK UP Preschool-6th Parents: 

When entering the parking lot to pick up students after school, we ask that you use the east entrance and pull up along the school all the way to the west end of the sidewalk by the mailbox.

Students must be picked up by A PARENT.  If someone other than a parent is picking students up the office must receive an email or phone call prior to 2:30 p.m. M-Th and 1:30 p.m. on Friday.  The end of the day is a busy time in the office so we appreciate your help with giving advanced notice.

This is a new year so we need to hear from you.  People listed for pick up do NOT carry over from last year as situations and schedules may have changed over the summer. 

Preschool – 6th will dismiss at 3:10 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
