District Mission Statement:  To Provide a High-Quality Education for All Students.

Car Rider Dismissal Map

Car rider dismissal

Students must stay in their cars until the 7:45 bell.  For the safety and security of your child,parents must supervise their children prior to 7:45.  Students may not be dropped off unsupervised prior to that time.
Although our dismissal procedures have not changed this year, the city did put in a no left turn sign to help re-enforce our policies.  Our students’ safety is our first priority.
