School Hours

School is open from 8:40 to 3:00 pm.  It is really important students arrive by 9 am.

It is very challenging to manage anyone who is late.

If late, students must sign-in on the tablet in the office before going to their learning common. 


Please note when using the HERO app you can easily notify the office if your child has an appointment/ is sick or is going to be late.   Remember no student is allowed at school if they are sick.
