    Information for the 2019-2020 School Year:
    Registration Information for Pre-K and Kindergarten:

    On the First Day of School:

    Students should report to school at 7:30 am and proceed directly to their classrooms. Parents will be required to sign in and sign out at their child’s classroom. All students reporting to the temporary classrooms may go directly to their rooms at 7:30 am where their teachers will be waiting for them. Parents going inside temporaries will need to sign in and out there. Pre-k and kindergarten students will line up on the right side of the gym where their teachers will meet them. Any student who is unaware of his/her classroom assignment will be directed to the cafeteria where he/she will receive the name of their teacher.

    At 8:00 am, parents will be asked to say goodbye to their children and allow them to get their day started with their teachers. The PTA is hoping that you can join them for coffee and donuts in the cafeteria at 8:00. They want to share with you some information about the PTA budget, planned and proposed activities for the year, as well as ways you can support their efforts.

    Dismissal Procedures:
    Pre-k students will be dismissed at the front door beginning at 1:55.
    Kindergarten students will be dismissed at the kindergarten doors located down the ramp off of the playground. Someone will be at the top of the ramp to direct parents.
    Students in grades 1st through fifth will be dismissed on the playground.
    Aftercare students will be dismissed to the gym at 1:45, where they will be picked up by their aftercare providers.

    On the Second Day of School
    We will begin our regular arrival and dismissal procedures. Students will be allowed to enter the gym, starting at 7:25. Car riders can exit cars in the alley and enter the school through the gym doors. Walkers will come through the front door. Students will be asked to line up by grade level while in the gym, and they will be dismissed from the gym by grade level when the 7:30 bell rings. Students arriving at 7:30 can report directly to their classrooms. Please follow the directions of the staff on duty in the mornings.

    The Raptor system will be in the gym beginning day two so that parents can sign in and receive a visitor's pass that will allow them to walk their children to class. As you sign in, we are asking that you allow your child to report directly to his/her classroom so that he/she is not marked tardy for the day. Raptor passes will not be issued after 7:43. Parents, please be sure to bring with you a valid license each time you visit the school. Students are expected to be in their classrooms before the 7:46 late bell.
