Retrieving Student Belongings

Classroom teachers are in the process of collecting and bagging all materials left behind by students from lockers and desks.  Below, you will find a schedule of when you will be able to access the building for pick-up.  We have created the schedule based on last name.  Below you can find the time and dates that the building will be open to pick up your child’s belongings.  We ask that you adhere to the schedule so that we can maintain social distancing in the building.  Please enter through the front door.  The main hallway will have a materials organized by class and student name.  Staff will be onsite to help direct you to your child’s belongings.  If your child has medication in the office, you will also be able to retrieve that at this time.

Pick-Up Schedule

Updated School Start Times

As a result of our middle school reconfiguration, some of the school start/end time had to be adjusted beginning with the 2020-21 school year. Adams Middle School hours will be 7:50 am- 2:40 pm to align with Franklin and Stevenson Middle Schools.

Additionally, there are seven late start elementary schools (Edison, Graham, Hamilton, Hicks, Taft, Walker, and Wildwood). Their start/end times will be altered by 10 minutes. The new hours will be 9:10 am- 4 pm.

Each week, new learning activities will be released on our learning hub.  Your child’s teacher will discuss this with you and will share these new activities with you weekly.
