The bell schedule for 2019-2020 school year is 7:45am-3pm for students in K-5th grade. The Pre-K schedule is 7:45am-2:15pm.

  • Children can be dropped off in the gym starting at 7:05 a.m. There will be adults present to monitor the children.

  • Breakfast can be purchased from 7:05 – 7:30.

  • Students in Pre-K through 2nd grade will be supervised in the gym until their teacher picks up the class at 7:35am.

  • Students in 3rd, 4th & 5th will be supervised in the gym until their teacher picks up the class at 7:35am.

  • On the first day of school, parents are welcome to walk their child to the classroom.

  • If your child arrives after 7:45 a.m., they need to go to the office and get an arrival pass.

  • The school office is available to assist you from 7:15am-3:30pm each day.

Where to drop off

  • All car riders are dropped off and picked up in the back of the school, along the circle driveway on Yates avenue.

  • All bus riders and off-campus childcare vans will dropoff and pick up in the front of the school on Arroyo Seco.

  • We cannot allow car riders to be dropped off along the front of the school on Arroyo Seco, where the buses drop off. It creates a dangerous situation with cars blocking the bus lane and students trying to walk between the traffic.

  • Students can ONLY enter the building through the front door on Arroyo Seco or the door in the 200 wing in the back of the school. Please don’t knock or ask teachers or students to open the 100 or 300 wing doors to enter; they’re to remain locked.

Dogs are not permitted on school property during school hours, including arrival and dismissal times.

Please help us start each day successfully by making the drop-off quick, and assuring your child that you will be back to pick them up.

Morning Assembly

On Mondays (Kinder-2nd) or Tuesdays (3rd-5th), students usually start the day with an assembly in the gym. They listen to announcements, highlight weekly lifeskills and social emotional learning lessons, recognize celebrations, show school pride by singing the school song, and say the Pledge of Allegiance and the Texas pledge. Sometimes kids read poems or talk about a historical figure.
