The Cafeteria will open at 7:00 a.m., the Academic and Technology Buildings will open at 7:30 a.m., and the Gym will open at 7:55 a.m. Prior to these times the buildings will be locked. Students who want to meet with a teacher (including the Library) before 7:30 a.m. will need to pre-arrange the meeting with the staff member. With the exception of Jazz Band, there is no reason for students to be on campus before 7:00 a.m..
