Welcome back to another wonderful school year. Below you will find our drop-off area for the morning and dismissal plan. The Sierra staff would like to thank you for all your support in creating an effective before and after-school release plan. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Brabson at 812-5800. Again, we thank you for your cooperation and patience.

Morning Drop Off

Parents dropping students off in the mornings - please note that doors to the school DO NOT open until 7:20- Please DO NOT ARRIVE any earlier.

There are 2 places where students can be dropped off. The Round About, in the front of the school or, in the side parking lot located on the north side of the campus. In the Round About please remember to not exit your car, please drop your students on the curb and move on through. This is to prevent traffic from blocking the road, if you need to get out of your car be sure to use the north parking lot.

All Students will need to enter the building and go straight into the cafeteria where breakfast will be served. Students will be released to their designated areas at 7:45. Please note the first bell to start school will ring at 7:50 and the Tardy bell will ring at 7:55.

In addition, when dropping off your students, parents will not be allowed in the building. If you need to meet with a teacher or principal, please make an appointment - this is not a good time for teachers to talk, as they are preparing for duties and their day to begin.
