  • SCHEDULE

    Your student will receive a visual schedule on the first day of school.  Due to our students participating in electives and General Education PE, there are adaptations to each student's schedule.  The first week of school will be devoted to learning those schedules and the routine of the classroom.  I have listed a Bell schedule as reference below.  

    Monday Bell Schedule/Tuesday-Friday Bell Schedule

    1. 8:20-9:05/8:20-9:12

    2. 9:09-9:54/9:16-10:04

    3. 9:58-10:43/10:08-10:56

    Arrival and Dismissal Protocols

    If you plan on dropping off and/or picking up your student from the ALE classroom rather than riding the bus, please enter the campus grounds from the Eagle Vail entrance and take an immediate left.  Park in one of the places near the chain link fence.  A para or teacher will receive your student at your car in the morning and walk your student to your car in the afternoon.

    PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE IN THE AREA OR PARK IN THE AREA WHERE THE BUSES DROP OFF AND PICK UP.  YOUR AUTOMOBILE IN THIS AREA LIMITS VISIBILITY FOR THE BUS DRIVERS, AND WE ALSO DO NOT WANT STUDENTS CROSSING IN ANY AREA WHERE THERE ARE SCHOOL BUSES.

    Drop Off: 8:15 a.m. (Please, no earlier than 7:45)

    *If you arrive later than 8:20, please take your student to the front entrance of the school to be dropped off.

    Pick Up: Monday - 3:20 p.m. (Please, no later than 3:25); Tuesday-Friday - 3:50 (Please, no later than 3:55).

    Parents, please be respectful of these arrival and dismissal times.  It is extremely important to us to maintain safe supervision at all times.  There are duties and meetings frequently scheduled before and after school, so arrivals that are too early or pick-ups that are too late pull staff members from other scheduled areas of importance.

    **We can be accommodating with using the side door, but I'm also protective of documenting each students' instructional minutes.  If you're planning on picking your student up early, please follow campus procedures by checking your student out at the front office rather than asking to pick them up at the side door.  Thank you.**
