School begins on Monday, August 20th, 2012 at 8:55AM
The first week of school is an exciting one for students, but it can also be a hectic one as schedules are adjusted, buses are early, late or overcrowded, and students learn to adjust to the expectations of different teachers during the school day. To answer some commonly asked questions and to help your child adjust to our school’s requirements, the following information may be helpful:
SCHOOL HOURS/ GENERAL INFORMATION
School Hours are: 8:55 a.m. – 3:37 p.m. Students proceed through six class periods and lunch. During the first week, students will receive information about clubs and activities held after school. Students who take a bus to school are eligible to take an activity bus home after these events.
WHAT TO BRING THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Paper and sharpened pencils and pens are all that is needed for the first day supplies. Lunch money or a bag lunch should be brought.
HOW DO I GET LUNCH
School lunches are available daily. The current cost is $2.00 This price is subject to change. A la carte items are also available. Students receive adequate time to eat and socialize. During the first few days, lunch lines are usually slow moving as students acquaint themselves with the menu and prices.
WHERE DO I CATCH THE BUS
The School District Transportation Department is responsible for establishing the bus routes and pick up times. The bus routes will be posted on the front doors of the school the week prior to the first day. The bus numbers are posted on each bus. Students are reminded to record the bus number for easy reference in the afternoon. Students always take the same bus both to and from school and only students assigned to the bus are permitted to ride the bus.

Students who come to school inappropriately dressed will be required to change. If the student does not comply, an IN-School Suspension will be issued for the day. Parents may bring in a change of clothes: however, the student will remain in the In-School Suspension area until they are fully compliant with dress code attire. All attempts will be made to avoid students missing class time for dress code concerns. However, students missing class time due to failure to conform to school policy concerning personal appearance will receive an unexcused absence for the class.
Teachers will begin issuing textbooks during the first few days of school. It is important that these textbooks have the child’s name written in ink on the inside front cover and the textbook is covered to help protect it from damage.
If your child is assigned physical education, please alert the teacher of any medical condition as soon as possible.
