What time should you arrive at school?

For safety reasons, students in Kindergarten - 5th grade should not arrive at school before 8:50 a.m.  We have staff on duty from 8:50-9:05 to supervise students as they arrive.  When they arrive prior to 8:50, there are no adults there to supervise, which is a safety concern.  When students arrive on campus, they are expected to go immediately to the door where their class lines up and wait for the bell to ring.  (see 5B's matrix for specific expectations)
