Rolling Entry for 2017-18 School Year:
Next year, Iron Horse will be implementing a Rolling Entry to our school day. The school doors will open at 8:20am and will remain open until 8:37am. Students may arrive at any time during this window. As students arrive, they will go directly to their classroom. There will be two entrances open to the building: the main entrance will be for students that are dropped off or walk from Hidden River, Preston Hill, etc., the other entrance will be near the bus loop for bus riders and students who walk from Turtle Creek or the apartments. Students will be supervised by their classroom teachers when they arrive in their classroom. 

As we are opening at 8:20am, there will not be supervision available surrounding the building before this time. Please DO NOT send or drop off your student before 8:20am. Parents are asked to say goodbye to students as they reach the doors. Additional information can be found here: Letter to Parents. Information will also be sent home over the summer.
