First Day of School

We are so excited to welcome back our students and families! 


  • Tuesday, September 5th - Grades 1st-6th
  • Wednesday, September 6th - Kinder 

As we prepare for next week, we have some important updates to share regarding the first day of school and pick-up and drop-off procedures. 

This year we are allowing parents to walk their children, on the first day of school only,  into their classrooms for the first time since the pandemic. How exciting! That being said, we would like to make sure this goes as smoothly as possible.  

Some Logistics:

  • Doors will open and students can enter the building through the gym doors at 7:30. 

  • Students can wait with their classes in the gym or head to the cafeteria for breakfast.

  • The bell will ring at 7:50 and at that time please  walk with your child directly to their classroom per teacher direction. 

  • Parents/Caregivers are welcome to stay until 8:00 when class begins. 

This is an exciting time and I know kids can’t wait to show you their classrooms but please be mindful and respect the time of the teacher.  We would ask that families leave promptly at 8:00 so everyone can get into a routine. Thank you!


Pick-up and Drop-off Details: We understand the importance of efficient and safe pick-up and drop-off procedures for our students. Your cooperation in adhering to these procedures will greatly contribute to the overall safety of our school community and our neighbors.

Pull into the EAST driveway or front of the school building. Pull all the way forward and have your student(s) exit your car once you are next to the sidewalk. Up to ten cars can unload along the sidewalk at one time along the yellow line only.  Students enter the school building through the Gym entrance. Those wishing to park may park on the NORTH side of the school building in the grass area.  Gates will be open.  Walk your children into the building.

  • Students must wait to enter the building until 7:30 am.

  • The school day begins at 7:50 am.

  • Those arriving after 8:00 must stop in the office before heading to

  • their classroom.

If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to contact the school office at 503-844-1140

Thank you for helping us ensure a smooth start of the school year!
