Students who are dropped off after 8:00 am will enter through the main door of the building. Students that drive who arrive after 8:00 am will enter through the rear hallway next to the Cafeteria. There will be an electronic lock with a camera door bell so that office personnel can “buzz” the students in. All students arriving after 8:00 am must report to the office to sign in.

Parents should pick their student up in the front of the school. There will be two lanes of traffic coming through by the bus stop awning.
