School will begin each day for students in Grades 1-6 at 8:15. A copy of this year’s schedule and important dates will be provided for you for your reference during the school year. Please refer to the calendar to assist you with scheduling or school holiday questions. Your cooperation is most important in ensuring that students are lined up and ready for class each and every day. Students should arrive no later than 8:05 in order to get to class on time. Please assist us as we build this important aspect of responsibility.
Often late arrival is tied to lack of adequate sleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests that elementary school students require 10 to 12 hours of sleep each night. For pre-teens, 6th Grade through junior high the recommendation is 9 to 11 hours of sleep. As the new school year starts and homework and extracurricular activities begin, please work to ensure that students are getting the amount of sleep required to learn and be successful.
Please note that each Wednesday is modified and school is dismissed at 1:00 for Grades 1-3 and 1:05 for Grades 4-6. Kindergarten students follow a specially designed schedule; please refer to specific scheduling information provided with your student’s class assignment. The modification of the Wednesday schedule allows us to continue our emphasis on professional growth for staff and broaden our pursuit of improving student achievement. Professional development opportunities directly impact the services we provide to our students. The modified schedule, in combination with our other staff development days, assist us in expanding our knowledge base and helps us remain consistent with current educational practices. If you ever have questions regarding our Wednesday afternoon format or any other professional development opportunities, we welcome you to contact our principal, Ms. Ruedel.
The Lemon Street gate is NOT a student entrance/exit. We will try to have coverage if staff is available.
