La Vista Bell Schedule
Breakfast is served in the cafeteria every morning from 7:45--8:00 am.
The buses arrive in time for students to receive breakfast. If parents/guardians drive students to school, please ensure that they arrive between 7:45 and 8:00 if you intend for them to eat breakfast at school. Please do not drop students off before 7:45, as supervision does not begin prior to that time. Once students arrive on campus, they are not permitted to leave campus again, regardless of their mode of transportation, even if the 8:00 bell has not yet rung. Upon arrival on campus, students are expected to enter the cafeteria and remain there until the 8:00 bell rings.
La Vista is a closed campus; Once students arrive on campus, they are not permitted to leave campus again, regardless of their mode of transportation, even if the 8:00 bell has not yet rung. Standing just off campus within sight/speaking/shouting range of staff and other students will be considered as having arrived on campus, and students in this range will be expected to enter the cafeteria/stay in supervision. School rules regarding conduct and behavior apply from the time a student leaves home on the way to school to the time a student arrives at home after school, regardless of whether the student is on campus.
Students who arrive after 8:00 must sign in at the front office before going to class. Students with an early dismissal must be signed out in the office before permitted to leave. Students may not leave campus at any time during the school day without express permission of a parent or guardian being given to either office staff or their case managing teacher.
Students who ride the bus need prior written permission from a parent or guardian in order to ride a different bus/be dropped off at a friend's stop. Students need express permission from a parent or guardian in order to walk home or make use of alternative transportation, such as going home in the car of a friend's parent. All students, regardless of their mode of transportation, are expected to leave campus within ten minutes of the dismissal time, unless specific arrangements have been made for a student to be supervised at school, such as for tutoring, Independent Study, meetings, etc. Students may wait on the benches in the front of the school for a parent or guardian to pick them up; however, staff are not regularly available to supervise students after school once the buses have left.
Every Thursday is a minimum day; school starts at the same time each day, but the dismissal time is 1:20 on Thursdays. Most evening events, such as Back To School Night, Open House, and Graduation, will be on Thursdays.
