School Hours:

Students can arrive at 7:00 am. First bell rings at 7:25 am. Tardy bell rings at 7:30 am. Students are considered tardy if they arrive past 7:30 am, resulting in parent check-in. Dismissal begins for car riders at 2:20 pm. 

Student Transportation:

Transportation changes are due by 12:00 noon on the day of the change. They can be hand-delivered, sent with the student, faxed, emailed, or complete the Google form listed on this website.  If they are emailed, parents should send to:

Absences, Tardies, and Checkouts:  

In order for an absence, tardy, or checkout to be excused, all excuses must be received in the office within five days of the absence.  Please be sure to submit any excuses in a timely manner. You can email the email addresses above or fax to 601-264-6771.   

Students are allowed up to 4 unexcused tardies per 9 weeks and 2 unexcused checkouts per 9 weeks.  Any student with more than the allowed number of unexcused tardies or checkouts may face disciplinary action.
