    Grades K - 5- 8:30 AM to 3:15 PM

    Eagle Entrance doors open at 8:10 AM for students who walk to school or who were dropped off by a parent. Students should not plan to arrive to school before 8:10 AM. Students entering through the Eagle Entrance will proceed directly to the Cafeteria to eat breakfast. Those students choosing not to eat breakfast will remain in the Cafeteria until all students in the Cafeteria are dismissed to their homerooms at 8:30 AM. The Main Entrance Doors open at 8:30 AM and we begin welcoming students riding the bus at this time. Students who are not in their classrooms by 8:45 AM will be considered tardy. Please make sure your child arrives to school on time.

    Our school operates on a 6-DAY SCHEDULE. Your child’s classroom teacher will provide you with a schedule that indicates which special area class they have each day. In the event of a school closing of any kind, that particular day in the rotational cycle is lost/skipped. To view the 6-Day cycle and the schedule for all classes, please click on the attachments at the bottom of this page.

    In an effort to maintain a safe environment for our children, we strictly adhere to our building entrance security procedures. The only entrance to the building, which will be utilized by the public during school hours, is the front entrance on Mapleview Road. The rear door entrance, located off the back parking lot, will be a morning drop off and an afternoon pick up location for parents/guardians who bring their children to school. This entrance will not be available as an entry point into the school between 8:45 AM and 3:00 PM. All access to the building during these hours will occur at the Elementary School main entrance on Mapleview Road.

    If your child’s daily schedule is changed, i.e. walking home, riding home with a different person, or visiting a friend before going home, parents are required to inform the school and to provide the office with a written, dated note. If an emergency arises, please call us immediately. Any changes need to be made by no later than 2:15pm. 


    Should it be necessary for your child to be excused from school early, a written request for early dismissal is required. Students will be dismissed early ONLY FROM THE MAIN OFFICE. Parents must come to the main office, and photo identification is required when picking up your child from school.

    Parents, teachers, and staff share the responsibility of creating a safe and caring school environment. Parents are provided with a copy of the Code of Conduct at the start of the school year. The fair and consistent implementation of these rules and consequences for not following them is necessary to ensure that all children are able to learn and succeed at Cleveland Hill Elementary.
