On school days, our doors open for students at 7am and the instructional day begins promptly at 7:30. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 7-7:20am. Students arriving after 7:30am go directly to the main office to sign in, get a tardy pass, and then go to class.
Car riders and bus riders are dismissed at 2:20pm, which is when the instructional day ends. Attendance is very important and contributes to student success. We depend on parents to ensure that our students are present and on time every day.

Did you know that last year we raised over $2,400 for our school by just linking our shopping cards at Target, Kroger and Harris Teeter to our school? All you need to do is go to customer service at your local Kroger or Harris Teeter and ask that they link (or re-link) your shopping card to our school. Both rewards programs run Aug–May each year and you MUST re-link your card to our school ID each year. Our Kroger School ID is 94484 and our Harris Teeter School ID is 3646. Our PTA can link your Harris Teeter card for you. Just email your last name and your HT card number or the phone number associated with your HT card to Susan Roux at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do the rest!
