At the end of the day, it’s all about starting a friendship, providing guidance and inspiring them to reach their potential.

Student School Uniform Policy

Our students wear uniforms daily and failure to comply will result in parent contact.  Extremes in hair, jewelry, or make-up are not permitted.  Please see the guidelines below prior to purchasing school clothes.  See more information here!


Tardies & Check-In/Check-Out Procedures 

Picture of a School House with Children looking out windows 

Students who arrive after 8:30 A.M. have to be signed in through the front office by the parent/guardian and will be considered “TARDY”.  If a student is to be checked out prior to the end of the school day, the student must be signed out in the front office by someone on the check-out list.  If someone other than the designated contacts is to pick up a student, written permission by the parent will be required and the person must present a photo identification.  A phone call will NOT be accepted to provide for your child's safety.

Dismissal is a critical time for all schools.  Office "traffic" must be kept to a minimum for the safety of all students, therefore, all check-outs MUST occur before 2:30 P.M.

See more transportation information here.
