We ask that as much as possible, families refrain from picking students up early as it creates disruption to learning times. If you are planning to pick a student up early, you must contact the office directly.

At 8:50, when the bell rings, all of our students will gather by the new play structure and be organized into classroom groups at this time. Staff will show students what door they will use to come in and out of the building. Mr. Josephson, our new principal, will provide a brief welcome and greeting and be available to meet parents and guardians.
