Start of the School Day
This a reminder that school begins promptly at 8:00 am. Our teachers take attendance at this time. Please try to arrive at school prior to 8:00 am so you are not considered tardy. Also, school lunch orders must be to the office before 9:00 am. If you are arriving late please let the office know prior to 9:00 am if your student will need a school lunch. Thank you for your help with this detail.
