Please remember, if your child is transported to school in a car and would like to eat breakfast, they must arrive no later than 7:45.
Students will be released for Parent Transportation at the South end of the building. Car tags have been issued to many parents in order to allow for a smooth exodus at the end of the day. If you regularly pick up your student and do not have a car tag, you may want to register for one. If you do not have a car tag, you will need to sign your student out at that exit.
Students will not be released from the front lobby after 2:15 pm in order to maintain a secure environment for students exiting to the buses.
If transportation arrangements change during the day, please notify the office no later than 1:45 pm in order for us to efficiently notify your student with as few classroom interruptions as possible. Emergencies do arise and we can make exceptions, however, please help us to be excellent in our education of your child.

Fields Trips are part of the instructional program. First-hand observation clarifies ideas, stimulates writing and speech, and makes a variety of areas in the curriculum more meaningful for children. During the field trip, the teacher supervises the group of students. Parents are frequently asked to accompany classroom groups and assist in supervising on field trips.
Parents who would like to assist on field trips are required to read the Volunteer Handbook and to complete and return the Volunteer Liability Wavier Form and the Chaperone Form at least two days before the trip is taken. Chaperone Forms must be filled out for each field trip.
