The late bus runs Monday through Thursday and there is no late bus on Fridays or minimum school days. At this time there is no Hartford Late Bus.
Please note: ID’s should be VISIBLE. They should be worn, not tucked in and not in pockets! Please leave your ID badge in your locker at the end of the day so you won’t misplace it. All students are required to wear their ID. Students will receive detentions if not wearing one. There is a charge of $5 for students who need to purchase a new ID.
Student Cell Phone Expectations:
Students must store their cell phones inside their lockers between the hours of 7:57 am and 2:35 pm. Students must not use cell phones during the instructional day for any reason. If students stay after school for an SDMS sponsored activity, they may check their cell phones between 2:35 pm and 2:45 pm. Once the after school activity begins, cell phones must be stored in backpacks so that students can give their full attention to the work they are involved in.
