Welcome to First Grade!. Deerwood Elementary 2014-2015. Procedures. MORNING ROUTINE Doors open at 7:30 AM. After 7:30, all students should go to the cafeteria and stay there until dismissed by supervising staff members. TARDIES
Doors open at 7:30 AM. After 7:30, all students should go to the cafeteria and stay there until dismissed by supervising staff members.
Instruction begins at 8:00. Students arriving at school after 8:00 will be considered tardy and must be accompanied to the office by a parent for a tardy slip. Also, students must be in the building at 9:55 AM to be counted present. Those who leave before 9:55 AM or arrive after 9:55 AM will be considered absent.
If your child is absent, you have 2 days to send a written excuse (or e-mail) or a doctor's note. If a note is not received within 48 hours of their return to school, the absence will be considered a TRUANCY. Please help us by checking your child's attendance records in Home Access Center.
*Note: Please check Student Handbook Pages 14 and 17 for changes regarding compulsory attendance and doctor’s notes.
If your child needs to go home a different way than "regular daily dismissal", you must send a note in the morning on the day of the change. Without a note, your child will be sent home according to the dismissal information we have on file.
If you plan on sending an email, please email the office AND your teacher.
If there is lightning, no student will be allowed to walk or ride their bike home. This decision is made at 3:00 by administrators. Your child will be dismissed according to your directions on the rainy day dismissal form you complete today. Please establish a pick-up routine with your child so that they know what to do in the event of a rainy day dismissal.
If you wish to purchase birthday treats for your child, please contact the cafeteria at least 2 weeks in advance. By law, treats brought from home are no longer permitted.
According to the HISD Parent Student Handbook, students are not allowed to pass out party invitations or thank you notes at school.
No more door-to-door fundraising!!!!
We look forward to a great year and meeting with you in October!
