For Parents Guardians
Arrival and dismissal times
The school day begins at 7:45 a.m. and ends at 2:35 p.m. Doors open in the morning at 7:15 a.m., and students will report directly to their classroom. The cafeteria will be open for students to eat breakfast if they wish. At 2:35 p.m., our Silent Dismissal screen runs, and students are dismissed according to their transportation home.
Please do not park in the front bus lane within 45 minutes of arrival or dismissal time. We have additional parking on both sides of the building (at the entrance off of Sovereign Lane and at the Jekyll Drive entrance). Please also make sure you park in a parking spot and not in the playground area.
At this time, visitors are not allowed in the building due to COVID-19 protocols, unless specifically cleared.
Hopefully we will be able to welcome volunteers later this year!
You can reach out to your child's teacher for opportunities to volunteer in the classroom. Many need parents/guardians to chaperone field trips, too. Before you can help in any capacity, you must clear a background check with FCPS.
- Please remember that you must send in a written note with a parent/guardian signature for student absences, even if you spoke on the phone with the registrar.
- Any time you know your child will be absent, call and notify the school that morning.
- In case of early dismissal during inclement weather, watch the local news, check our website, and expect emails from your child's teacher. We must have confirmation from you on how your child will get home that day.
