Don't forget school begins at 8:30

Don't forget school officially begins at 8:30 a.m. If students are not in their classes at 8:30 they are marked absent or tardy.   Lately we have had a lot of students arriving to school late and being tardy to their first period class.  It is very important that if students are not riding the bus, and their parents/guardians are dropping them off that they be dropped off no later than 8:20 a.m. so they are not late to class.  We do have a large number of parents that drop off students, and the line will back up if students are dropped off closer to 8:30 a.m. - and this makes them late to class.  It is also very important that parents pull up as far as possible in the morning and that students are let out then entire length of the front walk way (weather permitting) to allow the traffic to flow more quickly.  When students are late to class, they are missing important instruction, so please make sure to drop them off as early as possible in the morning.
