Frequently Asked Questions

What should parents do who are late for carpool?

The school day begins at 8:15 a.m. and attendance is taken. In the morning, parents should park in visitor parking and escort the child in the front door. Faculty and staff will escort the child to their classroom. In the afternoon, if carpool is closed, the children will be brought to the front office.

Whom should parents call if their child has a doctor's appointment?

Parents should schedule an early pickup on SchoolPass, which is our online system.

Why are parents required to get their fingerprints scanned at Intake Conferences?

It is mandatory to have all parents’ fingerprints added into our system to allow entrance into the building.

Why is it mandatory to use SchoolPass?

SchoolPass is used to record any absences, late arrivals, early pickups, and carpool changes accurately.

Why is it important to keep parent and visitor traffic to a minimum during the school day?

This prevents distraction for the children while they are learning in the open environment classrooms.
