School Hours

To ensure the safety and health of all members of the Sprague community, do not bring any pets to school during arrival and dismissal times.

With the exception of some bus students who may arrive early, students should not arrive at school without adult supervision before 8:15 AM, as there is no staff supervision available prior to that time.

Learn more about drop-off and pick-up here.

Change of Dismissal Plans


Sprague uses PickUp Patrol to manage student dismissal changes.

PickUp Patrol saves administrative time and reduces interruptions in our classrooms, while still giving you the flexibility you need to make changes to your children’s plans. Most importantly, it helps Sprague get your children safely to their correct after-school destinations!

They will be marked TARDY on their attendance record and given a Tardy Slip to present to the teacher so that the teacher knows the child is accounted for in our attendance system.
