Since we are located directly across from Helena Middle, our goal is to alleviate traffic concerns and provide an easier flow. Students are allowed to enter the student hall through the gym entrance at 7:30 a.m. They are not allowed in the building more than 30 prior to the 1st bell without an express purpose or prior permission. The first bell rings at 8:00 a.m. At this time, students are released from the student hall to go to lockers and 1st period. 1st period begins at 8:10 a.m. School dismisses at 3:22 p.m. The main office hours are 7:15 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. during the school year.
