The regular school day ends at 2:15 p.m.  There are late activity buses on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  The late activity period is from 2:15 - 4:30. There are two blocks of activity and the late bus leaves at 4:40 p.m.


If your child will be late to school or absent from school please call the Attendance Line to excuse the late arrival/absence.


Prearranged Absences:

When it is known in advance that a student will be absent from school, whether for one day or numerous days, contact must be made with the main office by written note.  Once contact has been made with the office, a pre-arranged absence form will be given to the student.  This form is issued as notification for teachers and staff; in addition it will provide the student with a means to collect their assignments.
