The 2020-2021 school calendar may change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and state mandates. This is our planned calendar as of Monday, August

The School Day

  • School Hours: 8:30 am - 3:15 pm

School Day Policies


Students should arrive at school between 8:15 and 8:30 am unless enrolled in AM Extended Day Program (EDP).


Before 8:15 am teachers are busy preparing for the day and should not be interrupted unless an appointment has been scheduled. In the afternoon, students in all grades (EK-8) must be picked up in the classroom or EDP by a parent or other authorized person; students are not dismissed to the parking lot.


Any students not picked up on time will join PM EDP, and parents will be charged the drop-in rate for this service. Students are not allowed on campus after 6:00 pm unless participating in a school event that is supervised by a faculty member or accompanied by a parent.
