Regular School Hours

    Supervision will begin for arriving students at 8:40 A.M. For safety reasons, car riders should not use the bus loop to bring their children to school. Use the entrance at the 5th grade wing between 8:40 to 9:00 A.M. Please obey the parking traffic signs. Students arriving after 9:00 A.M. are considered tardy. A parent must sign a student in at the front office.
    Dismissal begins at 3:30 P.M. Children should go directly home at the end of the school day. They are not permitted to go to a friend's house unless the school has been notified in writing. All children who remain after school to participate in after-school activities must have written permission from their parents.
    Students to be picked-up will be in the pick-up room. Students are signed-out at the entrance at the 5th grade wing beginning at 3:30. Students being picked up need a note from home and adults picking up students must be prepared to show a photo ID if requested by school staff.

    Delayed Openings    

    When QACPS have a delayed opening due to inclement weather conditions, the delay is usually 90 minutes. This means that doors will open to students at 10:10 A.M. and school begins at 10:30 A.M. The school breakfast program will be canceled on days when delayed openings are in effect. Field trips scheduled during the regular school day are canceled when delayed openings are in effect unless specifically stated. This will not apply to events scheduled after school.

     Early Closings

    If conditions warrant an early dismissal, the radio and TV stations will announce the following: "Queen Anne's County Public Schools will be closing one (or two) hours earlier than their usual closing time." Announcements are also placed on the telephone message recording at the Board of Education at 410-758-2403
