Please abide by the car line procedures and do not pick up/drop off your child on the side street (79th St). This is a safety concern as there is a high rate of traffic on this street during arrival/dismissal times. Additionally the street has been marked with no parking signs and we want to respect our neighbors in the surrounding community.
*Students are only permitted on campus 30 minutes before (9:00 a.m.) and 30 minutes after (4:30 p.m.) School unless they are involved with a school sanctioned event. There has been an increase in students arriving extremely early and being picked up late outside school hours. This poses a safety concern as our Teachers/Staff are not on duty to supervise. Please assist us in abiding by this request.

Before school Study Hall
In response to the high number of students arriving on campus early (before staff supervision begins) we are providing morning study hall for students who arrive prior to 9:00 a.m. I intend to keep all children safe and monitored by an adult while on campus so please understand that all students arriving prior to 9:00 a.m. will be expected to attend study hall. Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions on this initiative and thanks for your support.
After school enrichment opportunities
After school clubs and tutoring are available and transportation is provided. Please check with your child's school counselor for details. If your child did not pass one or more classes, please get him or her enrolled and participating in course recovery right away.
