The earliest that students may be dropped off at school in the morning is 7:40am.
Dropping them off early is a safety concern. We do not have supervision out front before this time. Our MPR opens at 7:40am.
If you need to drop off before 7:40am, please sign up for CARE.
Thanks to all families for using our new parking lot system with the name cards. This helps us get students into vehicles faster. If you need another name card, let the office know and we will make one for you. Since we started this system, the time it takes to get everyone on their way has decreased by 3-5 minutes. Every little bit helps!
