School Hours

Homeroom Hours

Our official academic day is from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. We offer before school and after school options that will extend the day to 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM at no charge to parents. Students must earn this privilege by staying in good academic and disciplinary standing with the school. Any Tier 3 offense and two or more Tier 2 offenses will result in a loss of this privilege. (Policy 5200-Student Conduct)

Attendance/Absence Reporting should be reported to the homeroom teachers. Please let teachers know of any absences your child will have regardless of the reason. Reporting this information to the homeroom teachers is critical to keeping accurate records at school.
