We have early dismissal every Wednesday at 12:10 PM.  Teachers use early release time to plan and prepare lessons, attend in-service training, and meet with teaching teams in professional learning communities.

NOTE: Contact the school office before 1:30 PM (10:30 AM on Wednesdays) if your child will be going home from school in a non-typical way. (Example: Student usually rides the bus but will be picked up by parent today.)

Drop Off Process

If you are transporting your child to school, please use the front parking lot to drop them off in the “Drop and Go” area. Remember to be courteous and pull all the way forward when dropping off your child.

Students should not arrive before 7:45 AM.  We do not have staff members available to supervise students before this time.

Being on Time for School is Important…

Every Minute Counts for Student Success!

Tardiness = Arrival After 8:05 AM

Students are expected to be in each classroom when their doors open at 8:00 AM but no later than 8:05 AM when the tardy bell rings. Students late to school need to report to the office for an admittance form to class.

End of Day Process

We are truly a neighborhood school, with 85% of our Dorothy Fox students in the walk zone. We believe our students and families deserve the most safe, secure, and efficient systems possible for exiting our students from the school. Please take a moment to review our four exit methods to ensure the highest levels of safety.
