Our School's Policies & Procedures

School Hours


•The tardy bell rings at 7:45 a.m.

•Students may not be dropped off before 7:20 a.m.

•If your child is tardy, please bring them into the office to sign them in.

•Students are dismissed at 2:00 p.m.


Dismissal/Drop Off Procedures

The Helms Road side of the school is the car rider drop-off & pick-up side of the school. The drop off area is in front of the Kindergarten wing- enter through the far western gates, circle in front of the building & exit through the gate into the parking area. The area in front of the main doors is not a drop-off area & is reserved for Daycare Vans in the afternoon. Please do not drop students off on the Woodside Road side of the school. This area is reserved for buses only


Check In/Check Out Procedures

After 7:45 a.m. your child is tardy. An adult must accompany them into the office to check them in and get a tardy pass to class.

Come to the office to check your child out. A photo ID will be required.

The closing of the school day is a very important time in terms of homework assignments and preparation for the next school day. Early check out during this closing time is disruptive to the entire class. Please try to limit checkouts. (Student Rights & Responsibilities Handbook p. 5.)

Due to safety reasons, students may not be checked out after 1:30 p.m. 


Visiting The School

To ensure the safety of our students, all visitors are required to check in and out in the front office. A driver's license is required so that a visitor pass, which must be worn at all times, may be printed out.

If you wish to eat lunch with your student, contact the cafeteria at 941-6187 before 9:00 a.m. Come to the office to sign in. You will meet your child in the cafeteria at their lunchtime.


Birthday Celebrations

Please do not send flowers or balloons. Because we have so many children with birthdays each day, this could become quite cumbersome and distracting. If you wish to share your child's birthday with his/her classmates, please arrange with your child's teacher to bring in a store-bought snack which may be eaten at lunch.



You may contact the volunteer coordinator (Shanna Starnes) or the classroom teacher to volunteer. All volunteers must have an Affidavit of Good Moral Character on file in the office. Annual volunteer training is required for all volunteers. When you come to volunteer, please check in at the front office and receive your volunteer name tag. Thank you in advance for your help. Our volunteers are an integral part of our success!

We also have a very active PTA and School Advisory Council. Each year we strive for 100% PTA membership. If you would like to be involved with the PTA Board or any PTA activities, please contact any board member (see PTA page.)
