Teacher assignments are posted on the front door of the school at this time. Classroom placement of your child is the result of a thoughtful process taking into account a number of factors. Final teacher assignments are made over the summer.What is the school schedule?The school day for grades 1-5 begins at 8:30 am. When the bell rings, students line up in their respective classroom line. Teachers then come outside to lead their students into their classrooms. Grades 1-5 attend school from 8:30 am - 2:50 pm, except on Wednesdays when they are dismissed at 1:45 pm.Note: For two weeks of parent-teacher conferences in November, grades 1-5 are dismissed at 1:45 every day.For kindergarteners, school also begins at 8:30 am. Parents can say good-bye to their child in the line or walk them to the door of the kindergarten classrooms and say good-bye.
