Doors will open daily at 7:30 am. Classes begin at 7:40 am and end at 3:00 pm except on Wednesdays when school ends at 1:45 pm. Do not arrive at school before 7:30 am unless you have made arrangements to meet with one of your teachers or any other staff member. Students are to use the entrances in the front of the school each morning. The back door is for staff and is also our handicapped accessible entrance. At the end of the school day, students are expected to leave the school building and school grounds immediately, unless under the direct supervision of a teacher. Students should use the front doors or the exits on 13th and 12th streets to leave the building. The back center doors are not to be used. The alley is very busy after school and is not particularly safe to walk through. Also, students are reminded that the time between 7:30 and 7:40 is available to you to organize yourself for the day. When you have all your materials organized, please report to your first hour room. You may visit with your friends in your classroom. This will ensure that everyone is prepared and ready to go at 7:40.
Our mission is to provide all students with the necessary skills to become productive members of society, and to foster individual achievement in a safe, encouraging environment.
