Students are dismissed at 3:25 p.m.

Transportation Procedures:

At John Strange, we are committed to providing a safe and nurturing environment for our students all day, which includes car drop-off and pick-up. We want to remind all families about bus procedures and procedures for car drop-off and pick-up of students. Please read the important information regarding these two processes at the link below and consider sharing with all family members who participate in the transportation of your child to and from school:

At 8:15 a.m. students in grades K-5 begin eating breakfast in their classrooms. If you do not want your child to purchase a school breakfast, please inform your child and your child’s teacher.


The lunch schedule for the 2016-17 school year is as follows:

Kindergarten – various times
First grade – 10:30 – 11:00

Third grade – 11:30 – 12:00
Fourth grade – 12:30 – 1:00

We welcome you to join your child for school lunch. If you come to lunch, we ask that you purchase a school lunch or bring a lunch from home. Food purchased from restaurants, including soft drinks, is not permitted in our dining room. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.


Because we have students with a variety of health needs, including diabetes and allergies to peanuts, who are unable to eat certain foods, we ask that you please celebrate your child’s birthday at home and not bring treats to school. Any treats must be brought to your child’s lunch period and an adult family member must stay during lunchtime to pass them out. No treats, edible or non-edible, will be allowed to be passed out in the classroom. Please reserve balloons, flowers and gifts for celebrating at home. Our teachers recognize students’ birthdays in class in a variety of ways so that they may feel special on their special day. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in helping keep all of our students safe.
