Our regular office hours are 7:45am to 4:15pm. School starts at 8:30am and is dismissed at 2:50pm. Student supervision is from 7:45am to 3:15pm. If students arrive on campus between 7:45am and 8:00am, they must report directly to the cafeteria where staff will be able to provide supervision. At 8:00am, all students are able to go to their morning play areas.
Should you have any questions, please contact me or our Assistant Principal, Dr. Cassandra Poole. Thank you for your continued support and partnership.

Pursuant to federal law, students may not be denied a public education. As such, Leon County Schools is committed to providing a world class education in a safe environment for all students--regardless of immigration status.
LCS administrators will continue to enforce Board Policy 5540 in relation to non-DCF law enforcement investigations involving students on campus. This policy requires parents’ consent in order to provide access to students unless there is a warrant or an exigent/emergency circumstance such as an investigation involving a missing child.
LCS counselors have been trained to provide support for students and families who may be impacted by changes to federal law. The safety and security of all our students will continue to be our top priority.
