Before we go, we would like you to become familiar with the school bells. The morning bell sounds like this: (play audio sample), this indicates that you should report to your first class of the day. The tardy bell, which sounds like this: (play sample) will signal that you are tardy and must receive a tardy slip from the office. At the end of the period, recess and lunch, the bell sounds like this. (play sample) At the end of the day, this bell will ring (play sample), which means the school day is over. If you hear the following bell, that signals the end of a safety drill. (play sample)


Got it? I am sure you will be used to the sounds of the bells. If you want to know the latest bell schedule, be sure to check out the school website, hilohigh.org.
