Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you may recall, a transition team of parents, teachers and administration started meeting last school year to talk about logistics for our new campus. These discussions included arrival/dismissal times for both sites. We agreed that we would start the school year and observe patterns to make sure we were safe and efficient.

After monitoring the traffic flow, we are pleased overall with how things have progressed. Families have settled into their routines and we feel we have already made slight adjustments to maximize instruction. We recently shared updates with our PTO Board and the SIC at both campuses and have received their support.

We have noted that the vast majority of our students are on the Upper Campus by 8:00 AM each day.  This has allowed both campuses to start instructional day at 8:00 AM. We also noted that the dismissal process is smoother for both sites if we dismiss the Upper Campus walkers/bike riders first so they can get to their siblings at the Lower Campus and get ahead of heavier traffic.

Please know that we will continue to provide supervision on both campuses starting at 7:30 AM in the mornings and supervise students until they are picked up in afternoon. We are especially sensitive to those families who are split between the Lower and Upper Campus. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding in our car rider lines and with bus transportation. Our ultimate goal is to get our students to their destination safely. We will continue to monitor our traffic flow as we grow.  

If you have any questions, please contact either Mr. Williams ( or Dr. Berry (
