Drop and Go Information
Our students' safety is our top priority. In order to ensure their safety, parents are reminded to drive slowly and carefully in the school parking lot. Remember to follow the arrows as you enter the parking lot. Our staff members will be available in the Drop and Go area daily from 8:40 am to 9:00 am and 3:40 pm to 3:50 pm to assist students as they arrive and depart school.
Beginning Tuesday, September 9, we will begin to implement a new Drop and Go procedure. Each parent will receive 2 cards to keep in their vehicle(s). Each student will have a card that matches their parent's card. This will ensure that each child is being picked up by the correct person.
Daily attendance is required for academic success. The bell rings at 8:50 am each day. Please make sure students arrive on time. Students who arrive after 9:05 are considered tardy and may miss their morning routine and instructional time. Regular attendance at the elementary level sets a good pattern for your child's entire school career.
Rights to Special Programs and Services
The Prince William County Public School Division is required to inform the community of a student's right to a free, appropriate public education and the availability of programs and services, including a special education. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are federal laws that give the school division certain responsibilities with respect to providing such educational programs to students with disabilities. If you suspect that your student may have a disability that affects their academic or developmental performance or for more information, please contact the Director of Special Education at 703.791.7287.

School Lunch Prices Increased for 2014-15 School Year
School lunch prices for the 2014-2015 school year were increased in compliance with the Equity in School Lunch Pricing Provision of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The purpose is to insure that federal funds received for free and reduced price meals are not diverted to cover the meal cost of the students who do not qualify for meal assistance.
