On school days, our doors open for students at 7am and the instructional day begins promptly at 7:30. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 7-7:20am. Students arriving after 7:30am go directly to the main office to sign in, get a tardy pass, and then go to class.
Car riders and bus riders are dismissed at 2:20pm, which is when the instructional day ends. Because attendance is very important and contributes to student success, please do not pick your child up before then. In order to minimize class disruptions and maintain student safety, arrangements for early pick-ups must be made by 1:45pm or will not be honored.

We are required to give a series of standardized tests at the end of every school year, and couldn't do it without our wonderful proctor volunteers! We'll administer tests from Fri, May 24 to Fri, Jun 7, and need about 50 proctors each day (mostly from 7am - 12pm; also from 11:30am - 2:30pm). Please click here to sign up!
We begin administering end-of-grade (EOG) and other high-stakes tests this Fri, May 24 when all students will take the Reading EOG. Please ensure your child gets a good night’s rest and arrives to school on time each testing day. Students will not be allowed to enter a testing session once testing begins. Cell phones, smart watches, timers, and anything else that makes noise must not be in any testing session. Please remind your child to leave these items at home on testing days. School will be closed in observance of Memorial Day on Mon, May 27 and students will test on the following day so plan to arrive to school on time. All testing dates are listed on our calendar. The last day of school for most students will be Fri, Jun 7. However, students scoring a level 2 on the Reading and/or 8th grade Science EOGs must attend Take 2 at Rogers-Herr on Mon, June 10 and Tue, June 11. Bus transportation, breakfast and lunch will be served both days. A letter will be sent home with students who are required to attend Take 2 as soon as we get student scores.
Our National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is hosting a canned food drive through Fri, May 31. Our students will send all donations to local school food pantries this summer. Bins will be placed in each team's corridor for students to drop food in. The team with the most items donated will win a popsicle party on Wed, Jun 5. Please consider sending canned food to school with your child for this great cause!
