The Early Bird Program monitors the safety of the students; however, no organized program of instruction is presented. Students are required to follow all school disciplinary rules during this time. The school reserves the right to exclude students from the Early Bird Program for disruptive behavior or other misconduct. There is no fee for Early Bird and students can be dropped off as early as 7:00 AM.

Late Bird Program
Monday - Friday, 4-5:30 PM on regular school days

Late Bird Program is available to all students and is scheduled Monday through Friday, 4-5:30 PM, unless otherwise posted. Late Bird is a supervised program for students to use after regular school hours. It is a service the school provides as a convenience to parents. Late Bird is a quiet, study-time atmosphere where students can get a head start on their homework. The program is monitored by a supervisor and any designated assistants. After 4:00 PM, Late Bird becomes a free period and remaining students can work and socialize within the designated area with the supervisor present. Late Bird will begin the second day of school. All students attending the Late Bird Program are required to sign in using the Sign-In/Sign-Out Log kept by the Late Bird Program supervisor.

At 4:00 PM, ALL students still waiting for pick-up will be escorted to the Late Bird Program. If a parent is not present to sign the student out, the Late Bird staff will document the student's departure time. Parents will be billed for any time that a student spends in Late Bird.
