Richmond County School Calendar:
School hours are 7:25 am - 2:15pm
The building is open to receive students at 6:50 a.m. Please do not drop students off before this time as there may not be anyone to monitor them.
The end of the school day is 2:15 p.m. Students who leave school before 2:15 p.m. will be counted tardy until a doctor's note is received. To protect the instructional day of all students, we do not release students early to avoid long lines. Calling into classes to release students early is disruptive to the education of all students in that class. Emergencies and doctors appointments will be handled on a case by case basis.
For the safety of our students, we do not allow students to be dismissed after 1:45. At this time, the entire student body is moving around the building to their dismissal location. Just a reminder, when you pick your student up early it is considered a tardy. In addition, they are missing the last few minutes of their class.
What if I hate the long lines for pick up?
It is best to wait until a little after 2:20 pm. You will be amazed at how easy it is if you arrive at 2:20. There is plenty of parking, you are not technically late, and there are no lines. Try it and let us know what you think.
What do I do when I arrive at the school?
Your GPS will direct you to 42nd street. This is actually the rear of the school. You want to park in the parking lot on 44th street. Push the grey button on the door to gain access to the school. When you enter the school go to the front office. The lovely Ms. Burgess will guide you from there.
How does the school communicate with parents?
