For safety reasons and the severe heat, all students will remain inside the building until their guardian has arrived. Please be sure to have your pick-up sign with you or you will need to go to the front office to collect your child. Safety is our number one priority!

  • Learning will stop at 3:05 PM and dismissal begins at 3:10 PM.
  • Pick up for Primary (PK3-K) is on the Manor side of the building. *Same procedure as the 22-23 school year*

  • Families with students in both groups pick up on the Manor side.
  • Please do not pick up students between 2:45 and 3:10 PM.
  • If changes occur to a student’s normal going-home routine, please contact the classroom teacher before 2:30 PM on the day the change is to be made. If the classroom teacher is not notified, they will dismiss the student per usual.
  • Guardians who arrive after 3:25 p.m. will need to pick up their student in the front office.
