Children may be dropped-off from 8:50 a.m.-9:00 a.m. However, if in exceptional circumstances, you need to bring your child to school earlier, please take him/her to the Administration Office.

If you have two or more children to pick-up, you may follow the earliest time schedule among this group of children. Please advise us in advance so that we can prepare them.
The parents or guardians must also advise the office or the teacher if the child will be picked-up early and/or if another person will be picking-up the child. For security reasons, we will not allow a child to go with another person if we do not receive notification from you. The other person may be asked for an identification card before we hand over the child.
School Bus - Transportation
Our school provides transportation to and from school for those students who are registered for the bus. The bus fee is payable on week before school starts, or one week before each semester.
We want to ensure a safe bus ride for all students. Please make sure your child understand these important safety rules :
Each child is assigned a specific seat. He/she must remain seated with his/her seat belt securely fastened at all times. No eating, drinking, shouting, or hitting is allowed. Each student must obey and be courteous to the bus monitor and driver. If a child does not behave well, he/she may be temporarily or permanently suspended from riding the bus. No refund for the period of suspension will be granted.
If there is any change in the transportation plan, you must notify the school office or the teacher before the child will be allowed to leave the school.
PLEASE BE ON TIME. Be at the bus stop at the designated time. The bus will wait only for a minute since it has to follow a time schedule. If you are late in meeting the bus during drop-off, your child will be taken back to the school. You are then responsible for picking him/her up from school.
Non-bus riders must pay \5,000 per person/ one way trip if they wish to ride on the bus. We request that you advise us of such arrangements in advance.
