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