Start/Dismissal Time

At Bill Arp Elementary School the safety or our students and staff is our first priority. The following guidelines are in place to allow us to keep your student(s) safe.

Morning Guidelines:

School doors open at 7:00 a.m.
Classroom Instruction begins at 7:40 a.m.
Students who are not in their classrooms at 7:40 a.m. are marked tardy.

Afternoon Guidelines:

School dismissal begins at 2:10 p.m.
Students will not be allowed to be checked out after 1:30 p.m.

Half-Day Guidelines:

Throughout the school year, the Douglas County School System will conduct half-days for students.  Information regarding these days will be sent home and is available on the Douglas County School System calendar. 

In the event of inclement weather early dismissal please tune into WSB TV or Radio and monitor social media and other forms of direct communication with your student's teacher and the school.    

It is very important that students are at school on time and make every effort to attend school for the entire school day every day.
