School Year Hours
8:00 First Bell
8:10 Tardy Bell
3:25 End of Day Dismissal
Due to the safety and security of our students, there will be no early dismissals after 3:00 without administrative approval. We cannot guarantee phone messages taken over the phone will reach your student.
Parents must write a note if a child's transportation is different than normal and have the child take it to the office. Car pick up is only in front of the school between the sidewalk black poles.
We hope that you understand that these procedures are necessary for PRMS to operate safely and efficiently. Please contact the school if you have any questions or concerns at 755-7400.
