Arrival & Departure

Classes begin at 7:30 A.M. and remain in session until 2:30 P.M. each school day unless the day's schedule is altered because of inclement weather.Unless students arrive after 7:30 a.m., they should not enter through the front doors of the building; the front door will not be open for general admittance of students during the early morning period.

All students should plan to arrive at school between 7:00 and 7:20 a.m. If students are not in their classrooms by 7:30, they are considered TARDY and will be assigned appropriate discipline if the tardy is unexcused. All students arriving after 7:30 AM are required to sign in at the Main Office and receive an Admit to class. Students arriving at school prior to 7:23 should report directly to the cafeteria, the gymnasium, or the band room (band students only) and remain there.

Students who are being dropped off in the Car Rider line should enter the building only through the cafeteria entrance on Columbia Road.   

Buses load and unload in the front of the school. For the safety of our students, please do not park in front of the school during bus traffic times (7:00-7:30 A.M. and 2:25-2:45 P.M.).

Students are not to loiter outside the building or near the campus before or after school.



At the end of the day, students must proceed directly to their assigned departure area and not loiter in or outside the building for any reason. UNLESS a student is under the supervision of a teacher, club sponsor, tutor, coach, or has permission of the principal to be on campus for other reasons, the student is expected to depart the school campus by 2:30 P.M.

Students who have missed their bus (or their ride has not come by 2:45) must report to the school office and remain there until someone comes to pick them up. Students remaining after school for any reason should remain with the coach/tutor/sponsor/etc., until their parent has arrived.

Departure areas:

* School buses load and unload in the front of the school.  Bus riders must exit the building through the front doors or the handicap door nearest the bus loading area.

*Car riders must be picked up on  Columbia Road only. Students are cautioned to cross the street with the crossing guard, or to use extreme caution walking to a car on the opposite side of the street, as this is a very congested area in the afternoons.

Car riders may not exit through the doors used by bus riders and, for the safety of the student, must avoid the bus area at all times. Parents may not wait for students in front of the building or in school parking lots.

Walkers may exit the building through door 24 on the lower level. For the safety of the student, walkers must avoid the bus area at all times.
