Arrival: Doors open from 7:45 a.m. to 8:05 a.m. If a scholar arrives before 7:45 a.m., they are expected to remain in front of the school until the doors open. They may sit on the pavement under the awning, on the bench, or they can choose to stand until the doors open. They should not touch the windows or doors of the building or block entry into the building for staff. Breakfast will be provided until 8:05. Additionally, if you park in the parking lot during the morning drop off, we ask that you walk your child through the parking lot and to the crosswalk so that we can secure his or her safety.
Right at School: Scholars enrolled in the Right At School program may enter as early as 6:30 a.m.
Tardies: School starts promptly at 8:05 a.m., and instruction begins immediately following the morning announcements. Scholars are considered tardy if they enter the building at 8:06 a.m or any time after. Parents must accompany scholars who are tardy into the building to sign them in for the day. The scholar will receive a tardy pass and then proceed to class. When the scholar has reached 10 tardies, he or she will be required to serve 1 hour of Saturday School to make up for lost instructional time.
Dismissal: There are four modes of transportation for dismissal: car riders, walkers, bus riders, and daycare riders. Please refer to the map below for an outline of the multiple lines of traffic Bray families take along city streets during school dismissal. For this reason, parents cannot walk to the front door to pick up scholars. When parents walk to the front door, it delays dismissal procedures. Therefore, we ask that you stay in your car to expedite dismissal procedures.
Dismissal will begin at 3:35 p.m. Parents/guardians must present a car tag to pick up scholars.
For the safety of our scholars, we must verify the identity of anyone who picks up a scholar without a car tag. If you do not have a car tag to pick up a scholar during dismissal, you will be asked to park and go to the office for an ID check. Please take a picture ID into the office, and someone will assist you.
Additionally, we begin dismissing scholars at 3:35 and continue until 3:55. This time will change after the first several weeks of school. Scholars who have not been picked up at 3:55 will be escorted to the foyer at the front of the building for pick up by a parent or guardian.
Daycare and Bus riders
Bus riders will dismiss from the library. Daycare riders will dismiss from the door by the gym.
Walkers will dismiss from door 18 and meet the crossing guard at the intersection between Roberts and Bennett Road. Walkers must use the crosswalk to cross the street in order to maintain their safety. Parents/guardians may meet scholars at the crosswalk where the crossing guard stands when we dismiss them. PreK-1st grade scholars must have an older sibling or family member with them to walk home.
**Parents & guardians: If you do not want to wait in the car line during dismissal, you can elect for your child to be a walker, and meet him/her at the intersection between Roberts and Bennett Road where the crossing guard stands. Please be sure to cross the street to collect your child so he or she does not have to walk through the parking lot on their own.
