A

Attendance

A successful school experience is the responsibility of the child, the parent and the school.  Your child's progress, both academically and socially, is influenced to a great extent by daily participation.  Regular attendance without tardiness is a key.


The abc s of kindergarten

  • Arrival And Dismissal

  • Children may not arrive at school before 7:30 am. The bell that dismisses them from the cafeteria rings at 8:00 am. The tardy bell rings at 8:15 am. If your child arrives in the classroom after this time, a tardy slip will be needed.

  • Walkers will be dismissed to the cafeteria at approximately 3:05. They will be escorted to the gazebo where you may pick them up. Car riders will be dismissed to the cafeteria at approximately 3:05. Bus riders will be dismissed at approximately 3:20. You may not come to the classroom to pick your child up.

  • If your child is scheduled to be a walker, pick-up or a bus rider and you need to change this, a phone call will not be acceptable. You must write a note or come to the school. You will NOT be able to call the school and make this change!!!!

  • Backpack

  • Your child will need to bring a backpack to school each day. (preferably no wheels)


Baggie

Baggie

  • Please send all money in your child’s baggie. Please label what it is for. If it is not labeled, we will send it to the cafeteria to be put on your child’s lunch account. If labeled, we will make sure it goes to the appropriate place. All correspondence from you to me or from me to you needs to be placed in your child’s baggie. If there are any notes sent home from the office they will be in this baggie. Please send this baggie to school every day! The baggie is important! The baggie will be inside your child’s blue folder, which needs to be returned each day also.

  • Breakfast

  • If you would like for your child to eat breakfast at school in the morning, the cost is $1.00. Please send all cafeteria money in your child’s baggie or pay it directly to the cafeteria.

  • Bus

If your child would like to ride the bus to school, you may want to consider it. It is easier for some children if the good-byes are said at home in the morning. The bus gives them a chance to visit with children they do not see often. It is already warm in winter!
