Regular arrival routine:

Our official start time is 8:30 a.m. Students are invited to arrive as early as 8:00 a.m. for a FREE breakfast in the cafeteria or unstructured play time in the school yard. We will have EVCS staff in both of those areas supervising, so parents are welcome to drop off or stay and hang out until the bell rings.
Our main entry to the building during arrival is through the yard.

The bell rings at 8:30 a.m., at which point K-5 students will line up with their classes in their designated spots and the teachers will take the students up to the classrooms to start the day. Pre-K teachers will be in their classrooms (201 & 203) to greet kids and families every day.

We ask that everyone neatly park their vehicles in the area behind the building, under the rear stairs, and make use of the fence to hang scooters.

We strongly recommend writing your name on all articles and personal belongings including jackets, water bottles, bags and backpacks.
Often scooters or bikes look similar, please be sure to clearly identify yours!
