Scholars, please remember that unless you are staying after school for academic support or to participate in an extracurricular activity, the school day ends at 2:30 PM. The noise created inside the building by large numbers of scholars waiting to be retrieved from school is disruptive to the teachers and tutors working inside the classrooms. Scholars that are waiting for rides can either 1) go into a designated classroom for quiet reading and study or 2) go to the tables or playground area outside of the building (weather permitting). Unless scholars are staying after hours for an extracurricular activity, they must be off campus by 4:00 PM. Similarly, a scholar finished with an extracurricular activity should be picked up promptly so that the sponsor or coach is not required to spend the evening at the school. Please remember that in many instances these individuals are volunteering their time.
