Arrival to and Departure from School

Classes begin at 9:05 a.m.  Students are dismissed at 3:10 p.m.  School staff will supervise classrooms, hallways, and bus loading areas to ensure students arrive and depart in a safe and efficient manner.

Bus drivers are responsible for the supervision of students while busses are being loaded and unloaded.  The driver of the bus is in complete charge of the bus and passengers.  Non-compliance to bus expectations may result in disciplinary action by the bus driver, classroom teachers, and/or school administration.  Disciplinary action may include exclusion from bus service.
