The 2016-17 school year is going to be a great one, and we are glad you are a part of it. 

Please review the information below to make sure we start out this year smoothly. 

Information on ARRIVAL and DEPARTURE:
*Students who ride buses will arrive before 7:05 A.M. and will be supervised in the grade designated sections of the bleachers of the gymnasium. 
*Students who eat breakfast may report to the cafeteria as soon as they arrive at school.  *Students who eat breakfast will remain in the cafeteria until 7:05, when they will be dismissed by teachers on duty. 
*Students may not move to the instructional areas until the bell rings at 7:05, unless they have an appointment with a staff member.  A note is required. 
*Students are to leave the building to board the bus promptly at 2:15 P.M.


****The following Hamilton County Board of Education policy is also in effect: 

The School Board cannot be responsible for students left in the morning at school earlier than thirty (30) minutes prior to the beginning time of school and for students who are not picked up by the time the last bus leaves in the afternoon.  In the morning students who do not ride the bus should enter through the main entrance only.


Outside Food or Drink during Morning Arrival

Students should not bring in outside food or drinks to consume during bus duty time or during class. Teachers may allow students to have bottled water in class. Outside food and drinks are allowed during lunch time. *Gum is not allowed at school.


Car Riders

Car riders must be dropped off and picked up in front of the building. For safety reasons students MAY NOT enter or exit vehicles in either of the side parking lots, or in the rear of the school without prior approval from the administration.  Car riders are to report to the bleachers in the gymnasium.  Car riders who eat breakfast can report directly to the cafeteria where they will remain until dismissed at 7:05 by teachers on duty.  Afternoon car riders are to report to the front of the building as soon as the 2:15 bell rings. 


*Due to safety issues, parents can NO longer park in the side parking lot and walk to the front to pick up your student.

Thanks for your understanding! This is for the safety of all students.
