What time does school begin each morning?

Students are dismissed from the cafeteria area at 7:45 each morning to go to their classroom. The tardy bell rings at 7:55.

When is school dismissed for the day?

Car riders and early bus riders are dismissed at 2:50.Late bus riders are dismissed at 3:20.Students who are checked out before 1:45 are counted ABSENT 1/2 day if they are checked out beginning at 2:30, it is counted just like being TARDY.

How early may I drop off my child before school?

Gardner STEM provides a before school, Early Bird Program, for our students who need to arrive early to school.The program begins at 7:00 am Monday-Friday. Parents who bring their students between 7:00-7:30 must come in with their child and sign them in for the program. The Early Bird students meet in our library. There will be a sign-in sheet available when you enter to drop off your child. We hope this service helps those of our parents who have to be at work earlier than would allow their child to ride the bus to school or be dropped off before our regular time, 7:30-7:45.
