School Start and End Times

High school and middle school classes begin at 7:30 AM. Students are dismissed at 2:14 PM. 

Student Absences

To report your child's absence or to dismiss him/her during the school day, please call the main office at 865-9658.

If students are only out for one day, we encourage them to rest, get better, and we will deal with the make-up upon their return. If the absence is for more than one day, the guidance office (865-9657) will gather homework for parents to pick up at their request. 

Tiger Cafe

Homework help and tutoring are available at the Tiger Cafe from 2:30-4:30 in the media center Mondays through Thursdays.

All grades are welcome to take advantage of these supports. Come get your homework done, get extra help, and use the school resources.

School Bus Guest Rider Protocol

In order for a student to ride a school bus home with a friend, the student must present a note to the front office from a parent/guardian which will only be accepted for that day. It must be dated for that day, signed by a parent/guardian, and include contact information in case of emergency. Front office staff will review and initial notes and keep copies on file with other daily notes. The guest student must then present the note to the bus driver.
