Building Safety- Check-In Procedures

Parents entering the building need to always check in the office first.


Parents Visiting a Classroom or Teacher

Please talk to an administrator to set a time up to meet with a teacher. Those kind of appointments need to be scheduled.



Parents-Important to Note  

If your student is going to be leaving early from school, please send a note with your student and they can come into the office at 7:25 a.m. to get a pass to leave when needed.
