Student Arrival and Dismissal

Starting Monday, October 20, we will make a small change to the drop off procedure for our students. Most buses will drop off behind the school which will help alleviate overcrowding in the front of the school. Please drop students off at the High School between 7:20 and 7:35.  Please stay in line and do not cut in front of others or buses for the safety of all our students and parents.
