Bell Schedule  
The following is a break down of our bell schedule for each day. Please emphasize with your child that they should not arrive at school before 8:10 a.m. The staff is involved in planning and meeting and is unable to provide supervision of students arriving earlier than necessary.
 The school day begins at 8:15 with the first bell. At 8:20 a.m. the tardy bell rings and all children should be in their rooms, ready for class to begin. Students that arrive after the tardy bell must report to the office before going to class.
