After school is a great way for students to receive extra help. If your student stays for tutoring, they must be with their teacher the entire time. After school tutoring ends at 5pm, and students should be picked up promptly at that time. Bus transportation is not available. Students attending morning tutoring should arrive by 8:10, and their teachers will come outside to let them in the building. If you have any questions, feel free to email your student’s teacher or Ms. McCray at [email protected].
