It’s hard to believe it is already the fifth week of school. Time seems to fly by once school starts, as everyone is busy with a full schedule. An exceptional faculty and staff have a lot to do with the smooth start to the 2010-2011 school year. This year we have an 8 period day that allows for more elective classes, including added elective periods for math tutorials. The school day starts at 8:00 and ends at 3:36. Please drive slowly through campus at all times, and especially when picking-up or dropping-off schoolchildren. We also ask that drivers do not drive or drop-off/pick-up students at the gym or fieldhouse, as our students load/unload busses near the gym. For our students’ safety, we do not want traffic through this area during bus loading and unloading each day. Traffic to drop-off and pick-up students occurs in the paved area in front of the high school. Do not park in the lane between the cafetorium and the large oak tree, park in the parking lot to help keep traffic flowing smoothly. The safety of our children is our #1 concern.
