• Morning Arrival

    Students should line up outside their classroom doors in the morning. Intermediate patrol officerscan enter the building early to prepare for their morning assignments. Students who arrive early for before-school activities, must go directly to their activity sites.

    The first bell rings at 9:05. The second bell rings at 9:10.

    Students arriving after 9:10 should stop by the office for an admit slip before heading to class. Late-arriving buses are the exception to this.

    After School Dismissal

    Students are dismissed at 3:30. Bus riders must get to the buses quickly as buses leave Meridian Park no later than 3:40. Walkers should go to the crosswalk areas, and parents should pick up students in front of the building.

    Breakfast Schedule

    Breakfast is served in the cafeteria beginning at 8:35 AM.
