Morning Bell

All students are asked to stay in the playground in the morning where there is supervision.  The school bell rings at 8:25 a.m.  This bell serves two purposes.  The first purpose is middle school students are beginning class.  The second purpose is it serves as a warning bell for 1st - 5th grade students.  When the bell rings the students will have a chance to use the restroom or get a drink of water before class begins.  A whistle will be blown by yard duty and students will line up in the playground area with their class.  They will then proceed to walk to class in a quiet manner.
