Students who arrive at school well before their scheduled start time will be placed in the Early Bird Program. The Early Bird Program serves those parents/guardians who must drop off their child before school begins. All students are supervised in the multipurpose room (MPR) until 10 minutes prior to the beginning of their first scheduled period. The supervisors of the Early Bird Program monitor the safety of the students in the program, however, no organized program of instruction is presented. Students are required to follow all school disciplinary rules during this time. The school reserves the right to exclude students from the Early Bird Program for disruptive behavior or other misconduct. Students are not allowed to leave the designated area without a hall pass before their release time in order to prevent disrupting classes already in session. There is no fee for Early Bird.
- At 7:35 AM, 4th grade students will be collected from the Early Bird program by a teacher and brought to their lockers and then to their classroom.
- All other grades will be released from the Early Bird Program 10 minutes prior to the start of their first class to visit their lockers.
