Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!
School begins on Wednesday, August 22, 2018.  Our School start and end times are 7:45-3:05 for the 2017-2018 school year.  School will begin at 7:45 and release at 3:05 Monday through Thursday.  Scholars may begin arriving no earlier than 7:35 as there is no supervision until 7:35. Scholars will be let into the building at 7:40. Scholars will be marked tardy at 7:46.  If a child is tardy, they should report to the front foyer to receive a tardy slip from the Community Advocate. 

Scholars will receive free breakfast and lunch again this school year.  We are excited to inform you that we have also been awarded the healthy snack grant again for the afternoons Monday through Thursday!
