First Day Of School Procedures

Welcome … and welcome back!  We hope that everyone has had a wonderful and safe summer.  September is now about upon us, and our return to school is now just around the corner!

On Tuesday September 6, families will receive emails with their child(ren)’s homeroom teacher(s).  The school year begins on the following day, Wednesday September 7, 2022.  Students are asked to congregate at the rear of the school on the tarmac from 8:15 a.m. where they will be met by the staff.  Teacher’s names will be affixed onto chairs on the tarmac, and students will be asked to line up in rows in front of their respective teachers.  The entry tarmac door will be the same door students will use to exit the building at the end of the day.  On the first day, Kindergarten students are asked to proceed to the Kindergarten enclosure on the South side of the school.  On the first day only, students in JK (Year 1) attend for only one block of the day, as follows:

  • JK (Year 1) students with surnames beginning with A-L will attend from 10:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.
  • JK (Year 1) students with surnames M-Z will attend from 1:10 p.m. to 2:50 p.m.

Please note, there is no busing for JK (Year 1) students on that first day.  

Please be advised that school starts at 8:30 a.m. sharp, our lunch hour will be 12:10 p.m. – 1:10 p.m. and the scheduled end time is 2:50 p.m. for all grades.

We wish to share with the community that over this past week alone, we have registered more than 30 new students to the school.  To this end, the organization on the first day of school is a tentative organization and given enrollment changes it is highly likely we will need reorganize our current classes at the end of September.

As always, we encourage our parents and guardians and their child(ren) to walk to school or park lawfully on one of the adjacent streets and walk to school.  For parents dropping students off, please do so in our Kiss and Ride area, taking note of the bus drop off zone.  Expectedly, traffic is very busy at entry and dismissal times and we ask that everyone be especially mindful in their driving in the interest of our collective safety.  Please be reminded not to park in the staff parking lot.

If your child is taking the bus you can now go to to find out their busing information.  Please have your child know if they are taking the bus home at the end of the day and review this with them, including details about their bus number. 

We wish you and your family a wonderful long weekend.  We look forward to seeing you on September 7, 2022.  Welcome back!
