  • Hi Crayton Families!

    We're excited to see our students next week. We have lots of new families so we wanted to share a few reminders.

    Crayton runs a "rolling bell schedule" so we start with A block on Monday, B Block on Tuesday, etc. So on Wednesday, the first day of school, students will start with their C Block. On their schedule, this is listed as 46P, 47P, or 48P depending on their grade.

    A bell schedule will be shared next week, but students should plan to arrive at school no later than 8:25. Our first class begins at 8:30 and we begin dismissal at 3:45.

    Students enrolled in Early Bird PE for first semester will begin on Monday, August 23rd at 7:30am.

    We have a tour video and a car loop procedure video on the website above.

    See you next week!
