  • This is a reminder for all students and staff about “arriving to school” in the morning.  Students may enter the building at 7:20am.  All exterior doors will remain locked until that time.  Please do NOT “piggy-back” into the school behind teachers — who do arrive earlier — nor should you open the doors for your friends if you arrived early.  Again, the school will be open to students at 7:20am.  See you grade-level admin with any questions.
