Students in sixth through eighth grade report to the Middle Learning Center (MLC) cafeteria where they will be supervised and escorted to class by security (5005 NW 112th Ave, Miami, FL 33178).
For the safety of all students, parents are not allowed in the building during arrival.  Parents are asked to drop off their children in the designated “PARENT DROP-OFF/PICK-UP” area.  Please drive all the way down so as to accommodate the maximum number of vehicles.  Parking and/or leaving cars unattended is not permitted in this area. Unfortunately, parking is very limited.

Children are expected to be seated in their homeroom classes by 8:35 a.m. for the opening exercises.  Any student arriving after this time is tardy and must report to the office for a pass!
After 8:35 a.m., other than the front entrance, all doors and gates will remain locked for security purposes and the safety of the children.

Students in sixth through eighth grade must be picked up from the Middle Learning Center (MLC) circular driveway in front of the school in the “PARENT DROP-OFF/PICK-UP” area (5005 NW 112th Ave, Miami, FL 33178) unless they are taking the shuttle bus back to the main campus.

Students in sixth through eighth grade who are not picked up on time, will be taken to the MLC office and parents must go into the office and sign their child out.

A shuttle will be provided for students in the MLC to be transported to the main campus for after-school activities and/or if they have a sibling attending at the main campus.  Only students with activities and/or siblings in the main campus will be allowed to board the shuttle.

It is most important that all children understand the plan for rainy days.  These plans must be made in advance with your child so that he/she understands exactly what to do in the event of inclement weather.  Children will not be allowed to call home to make any rainy day arrangements.

In the event of severe weather conditions, all students who are picked up by parents, walk or ride their bicycles/skateboards home, will remain in their classrooms until weather conditions improve or a parent arrives to the child’s classroom to pick-up their child
