ALL DOORS WILL BE CLOSED AT 8:00 AM SHARP!! YOUR CHILD WILL BE MARKED LATE IF HE/SHE ARRIVES AFTER 8:00 AM. ALL LATE CHILDREN MUST ENTER THROUGH THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO OBTAIN A LATE PASS.

Children arriving after 8:20 am are considered late.  You must escort your child in through the main entrance to receive a late pass given by one of the safety agents. A parent/guardian must then escort their child to the Main Office and hand the late pass to a Main Office Staff Member.  Lateness will be recorded on ATS and will appear on your child’s report card. A child who arrives late to school should never be dropped off outside the building or left unattended.
