Berney school hours are 8:15 a.m.-3:00 p.m. with the cafeteria opening at 8:00 a.m. for breakfast. For their safety, please do not have students arrive before 8:00 a.m. as there is not adequate supervision outside. Remember~every Wednesday we release at 2:00 p.m.

Please be extra careful traveling to and from school. Walkers, be sure to use the cross walks and side walks.  Student drop off and pick up areas have been expanded to the front of the school and continue around the building to the west side of School Ave. The parking lot west of Berney is an "enter only" lot for staff and visitors. For safety reasons, the bus lane/car exit area is not a student drop off and pick up area.
