First bell is at 8:30 am (Monday - Thursday) and 10:00 am (Friday). Please have students at school by these times to ensure they are ready to enter the building.

There is NO supervision before school. Students are NOT to arrive at school more than 15 minutes before the first bell.

If your child is tardy, park your car and escort them to the office. We will help them get to class from the office.


Calm Before Class lets students regulate before entering their classroom. As soon as students arrive on campus, they go to their assigned area to read, write, draw or engage in another calming activity.


Students enjoy breakfast in the classroom at the start of their day. At this time, breakfast and lunch are free for all students. However, we ask that all families complete the Free & Reduced Meal Application. This gives you access to other benefits and allows us to continue serving nutritious meals to ALL children regardless of income.


For safety and security reasons, students may not ride bicycles or motorized scooters to school. This is a recommendation from the local police.


School ends at 3:10 pm Monday - Friday.

There is NO supervision after school. Students should leave school as soon as they are dismissed.


Occasionally, you may need to remove your child from school before the end of the regular school day. When this happens, we ask that you follow the procedure listed below:

  1. Send a note to the teacher so they can prepare.
  2. If an emergency situation makes this impossible, call the Office Manager or the school office at 425-204-3350.
  3. To ensure that your child leaves the school with YOU, you must come to the Office and sign a log. Your child will then be called to meet you in the office.
  4. If there is a change in your child's after school transportation, please call the office before 2:45 at 425-204-3350.


Please do not park in the bus loading zones or in the driveway in front of the building. This is reserved for school buses.

A designated parking lot for parents and visitors is located south of the bus loading zone. The parent parking lot has a circular drive for dropping off and picking up students. Please stay in your car and wait for your student(s) to come to you. Continue on the circular drive and stay in the left lane next to the median if you want to turn left out of the parking lot and head south on 116th. Enter the right lane next to the sidewalk/fence if you want to turn right and head north on 116th.

Additional parking for drop-off and pick-up is available in the Word of Life Church parking lots across from and north of the school. Parking on the street in front of the school is for drop-off only. Patrols will cross students safely as needed.

Disabled and staff parking are directly in front of the school.

Parents and other visitors must enter at the front entrance to the school and check in with the office.
