School Hours




    Supervision of students at Chet F. Harritt begins at 7:30 A.M. To ensure the safety of all children, students should not be on the school grounds before that time.  If you leave for work early, please make necessary arrangements to have your children taken care of until supervision begins.  Please remind your child that he/she is to wait outside the main gate before school begins and must immediately go home when dismissed at the end of the day.


    Please leave your house in enough time for your child to be seated in class when the 7:45 A.M. bell rings.  It is important that all students be on time.  Punctuality is a life skill that carries over into the work force.  If your child arrives after 7:45 A.M., he/she will be marked tardy.
