Hours

School Office Hours of Operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. We are closed on weekends, Statutory Holidays, and Christmas and Spring Breaks (see Calendar for specific dates). During the summer break, office hours are sporadic; however, the school’s answering service is always on.

This section is to delineate specifics regarding the school day, and its daily operation procedures. These may change from time to time on some items; however, the following descriptions are general policy.

Students should not arrive more than 15 minutes early to school, or leave more than 15 minutes after dismissal, unless they are participating in school-sponsored activities.

Parents of young children who are unable to drop-off and pick-up at school designated times can access babysitting services before and after school. A number of our older students are happy to provide this service.

The only reason acceptable for older students to arrive early or stay late at school would be if transportation issues necessitated it. In these cases, the older students are expected to quietly and tidily occupy themselves. It is recommended that this time be used for academic work. After 4 pm, students may wait inside the main doors to the building. This allows the school to be locked after staff leave.

Appropriate behavior that respects the persons, school and community property, and belongings of others at the school is necessary at these times. Any behavior that compromises these expectations within our school environment will be dealt with on an individual basis.
