ELEMENTARY GRADES 1st-6th

Wednesday, September 4

The regular full-day schedule for students in 1st grade through 6th grade begins at 8:00 a.m. sharp. Any student arriving after 8:00 a.m. will be marked tardy.  Dismissal begins at 2:45 p.m. for walkers, and 2:50 p.m. for bus students and parent pick-ups.

All parents and students must enter the building through the main front entrance on from James Street. For safety reasons, students should not be dropped off in back of the school. Parents can either drop their child at the front curb or park in the designated front parking lot and walk their child in. It is expected that this front area will be congested on the first day of school, so parents are urged to park on either Elm Street or Library Avenue for easier access.

At dismissal, students being picked up are no longer permitted to exit the building to meet their ride. Parents are required to enter the building and sign out their children, and they may do so beginning at 2:50 p.m. Parents are to wait beforehand in the entrance foyer or outside the main entrance. 

JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL

Wednesday, September 4

Please be mindful of the construction as our capital project is in progress. Pay attention and abide by any signage or other method of traffic control in the parking lot. Otherwise, parents should turn left in the first aisle of the parking lot closest to Schroon River Road; follow the aisle around to the right to the area in front of the driveway of the high school, where they should drop their student. For students’ safety, students should not cut across the parking lot.

Student schedules 7th through 12th grades, will tentatively be mailed at the end of August. Students should bring their schedules to school on the first day. If changes are necessary,

School counselors will be available on Wednesday, September 4 to make adjustments.

SPORTS 

All varsity and junior varsity sports teams begin practice on Monday, August 19. Students will receive fall sports information in the mail during the week of August 5.  Modified sports will have various starting dates on or after August 26. For more information or questions, please contact the Athletic Department at 518-623-2861.

New this year, we have joined Schedule Galaxy for all sports scheduling. Information and instructions for signing up on Schedule Galaxy can be found in our sports mailing as well as our website listed above.

DISTRICT

Again this year a shuttle bus will be available to transport students who want to walk to the elementary school and take the shuttle bus to the high school. The shuttle bus departs from the rear of the elementary school each morning at 7:40 a.m. At 3:05 p.m., a shuttle bus will leave the high school to transport students to the elementary school.
