FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
Monday, August 24th is the first day of school for all 1st-6th grade students. Students will line up outside with their teachers in the designated areas. 1st through 3rd grade students will line up by the flagpole, and 4th-6th grade students will line up on the blacktop. Staff members will help direct students to where they need to go. Please remember that the tardy bell rings at 8:40 each morning. We ask that students arrive between 8:20 and 8:35 so that learning can begin promptly at 8:40.
Monday, August 31st is the first day of school for all kindergarten students. Kindergarten students will line up outside the front entrance with their teachers for the first several days of school. The kindergarten hours are the same as the rest of the school, so please arrive between 8:20 and 8:35 each morning.
As a reminder, the parking lot is closed each morning from 8:15-8:40 to all cars in order to allow buses to safely drop off students. There is parking along West Glenn Trail, but please take notice off all traffic signs to ensure safety for all of our students and community members.
School office hours are from 8:00AM to 3:30PM. Remember that our student absence line (847)357-5302 is available 24 hours a day. Please call by 8:00AM if your child will be absent from school.
