Length of School Day

School begins promptly at 8:00 and dismisses at 2:25 p.m. Car riders are dismissed at 2:30 p.m. Tardies and early dismissals are distractions not only to the student but to the entire class. Tardies and dismissals should not occur unless there is a doctor’s appointment or an emergency situation. The Buncombe County School Board Attendance Policy counts every 5 tardies and/or early dismissals as 1 absence.  Please make every effort to make appointments after school when at all possible.
