Students in Pre-K and Kindergarten begin the school day at 8:00 AM and are dismissed at 3:00 PM.  Students in Grades 1-8 begin the school day at 8:00 AM and stay until 4:00 PM as part of the Extended Day program.  Students in all grades are invited to participate in the Early-Bird program which begins at 7:00 AM and/or in the after school program which ends at 6:00 PM.
