• General Info for Parents

    Here's some useful information.

    Drop-off and Pick-up

    1st-5th grade students can be dropped off after 7:45, but they must go to the cafeteria for supervision until 8:00 a.m. School begins at 8:15 a.m.  for grades k-5. Dismissal times are as follows:
    Kindergarten Schedule:
    Early Group 8:15-1:00
    Late Group 9:15-2:00
    Grades 1-5 are  dismissed at 2:30 p.m., except on Thursdays and other minimum days, when dismissal is 1:30 p.m.

    Orion has very specific traffic procedures for student pickup, drop off and office visits. The procedures are designed for student and pedestrian safety above all other considerations.

    Lost and Found

    Items found around campus are in the lost and found bin by the picnic tables between 8:30-2:30.  Any items that aren't claimed at the end of each month and before may be donated to charity.
