The drive at the main entrance of the school is reserved for buses only. Pick up/Drop off is the entrance by the flag pole. Your child needs to be in their seat by 8:30. Please have your child to school by 8:20 if they do not eat breakfast or ride a bus. If your child eats breakfast at school, they should be here at 8:00.
Picking up students after school can by done at the flag pole entrance or in the back on Lynn Street. Please make arrangements with your child before school as to who/where they will be picked up. If your child rides a bus, they will be dropped off at the cafeteria doors and picked up in front of the school.
Lockers will be assigned on back to school night or the first couple of days of school. Your child will have plenty of time to practice their combination. Don’t worry, it oftentimes takes students several days to master their locker.
