Please see the below links for more information.. Morning Drop Off and Start of School: At 7:55 a.m. (when the first bell rings) we will be closing off the parking lot to parents walking their child to the gate. If you want to walk your child to the gate you need to arrive before 7:55 a.m. If you arrive at 7:55 a.m. or later, you will need to stay in the car lane. As a reminder, school starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. The 7:55 a.m. bell is a warning bell, and students who are already on campus are to line up when the bell rings. We leave the gate open until 8:00 a.m., but we will continue to close it promptly at 8:00 a.m. Your child will need to go to the office and will be marked tardy if they arrive after this time. To prevent being tardy, please leave your house a few minutes earlier.
