Important Reminders About Attendance







Regular attendance at school is a key factor to any student's success. Please be diligent concerning DeKalb County School System's attendance policies. School starts promptly at 7:40 am.

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
Now that we have the first few days of school under our belts, we are ready for some serious learning! As a reminder, if you're driving or walking your children to school, we ask that you drop off your child(ren) between 7:00 am - 7:30 am so they have enough time to get to their classroom by 7:40 am, when the last bell will ring. Patrols should arrive by 7:15 am so they may be at their posts by 7:20 am.
