Pick-Up and Drop-Off Procedures


      Students should arrive to school between 7:45 am and 7:55 am. Supervision does not begin until 7:45am. Students are marked tardy if they arrive after 8:00 am. Students arriving late should enter the main door and stop at the office for a tardy pass. Students riding a bus that arrives late to school will not be marked tardy.


      School dismissal is at 2:15 p.m. Students are supervised by teachers as they leave the building each day. Supervisors are located throughout the building and outside to ensure an orderly and safe dismissal.


      Please note the direction of parent drop off and pick up area in the front of the school. All vehicles must exit from Compton drive to ensure that students exit curbside on the passenger side of the car. Please plan accordingly as students cannot exit from the driverside of the vehicle.

      If families prefer to park, please use the parking lot next to the playground accessible from Lake Cornish Way.
