About Our School

Welcome to Chapin Elementary School (CES), where our school doors open for students at 7:00 AM and the instructional day begins promptly at 7:40 AM. Any student arriving on campus after the 7:40 tardy bell must be signed in by an adult at the front office, as the doors will be locked.

Dismissal begins at 2:30 PM. For safety reasons, students cannot be picked up after 2:10 PM. Please note that the school office closes at 4:00 PM each day.

CES offers an application-based preschool program for 3 and 4-year-olds, in addition to serving students from kindergarten through fourth grade.

Welcome to Chapin Elementary where we take pride in spreading kindness.
