ATTEN: PARENTS – The buzzer located at the first set of doors closest to Campbell Road is to be used ONLY by parents who have students in the Toddler, Preschool and Latchkey (a/k/a S.A.C.C) Programs.  All parents and visitors must be buzzed in at the front entrance doors even if your child is in a classroom close to those doors, i.e., the kindergarten/1st grade and 2nd grade classrooms.  Please DO NOT ask to be buzzed in at the first set of doors unless you have a child in one of those programs. For the safety of students and staff, the Learning Ladder policy prohibits staff from buzzing in parents who do not have a child enrolled in one of these programs.

Also, we are asking for your help as we work to create a safe and secure morning each and every day. School does not begin until 8:30 a.m.  The front doors open at 8:00 a.m. for students having breakfast. Please make sure that your child does not arrive prior to 8:00 a.m. (Band students will be let in on Fridays at 7:45 a.m.) All students entering the cafeteria/multipurpose room MUST purchase a breakfast. This does not include purchasing a bagel from the bagel sales fundraiser. On Fridays, students who are only purchasing a bagel from the bagel sales fundraiser cannot wait in the cafeteria/multipurpose room but, must go outside at their designated doors until the bell rings unless they are purchasing a breakfast in addition to the bagel from the breakfast program. Thank you for helping us keep our students safe.
