Please be advised that students waiting for school to begin should arrive at SEG no earlier than 7:45am. Students who are meeting with a teacher and have coordinated a time with the teacher may arrive earlier.
In winter weather students are let inside at 7:45am when temperatures are below 20 degrees. We monitor weather conditions each day to make the best decisions for our students. Students are let in at 7:45am because there is adequate supervision for the 420 students that attend SEG.

When students arrive at 7:45 and enter the building at 7:57 there is no risk of harm in the 12 minutes they are on the playground. Student safety is a priority, which is why we take into account this advice from the CDC.
Finally, please assist us in making sure your student is dressed for the weather. We have noticed many students coming without hats, gloves, coats, and wearing shorts. After having discussions with students they are choosing not to bring these things, it is not because they cannot acquire them.
Thank you for your assistance.
