Be Polite, Be Safe, Be Responsible!

Cafeteria Charges: The preferred method of paying is online at If this is not used, students need to bring lunch money in a sealed envelope with their name, teacher's name, amount, and cafeteria written on it. This includes money for the extra items as well. This will help our breakfast and lunch lines move much quicker.

Morning Arrival: Car riders are to be dropped off at our front door, only, no earlier than 7:15 a.m. Students should not walk up from the gym side. Once you get to #5 you may let your child out of your vehicle even if there is not an adult or Safety Patroller to open your door. Do not send or walk students across the road from our front parking lot as it is unsafe and delays traffic flow. Your child should arrive by 7:45 if they are going to eat breakfast. Students are tardy if they arrive after 8:00. You will need to come inside and sign your child in.

Afternoon Car Riders: K, 1st, and 2nd grade car riders and older siblings are dismissed at 3:00 and 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade car riders are dismissed at 3:20. If you arrive before 3:20 to pick up a 3rd-5th grade car rider, you will be told to drive around to get back in line.

Please Note:  If you would like to change the way your child is going home, please send a note to the teacher and or call the school at (865) 397-3127.  If no note or call, teachers will send students home their normal way.  

Free and Reduce Lunch Applications:  Please complete applications that were sent home or online @  .
