  • The school day begins at 7:50. Please try to have your child here on time. The side doors will close at 8:00. After that, students need to be dropped off at the front of the building. The tardy bell rings at 8:05. Your child will be counted tardy if he/she is not in their classroom by 8:05. If your child is tardy he/she must go to the office to get a tardy slip before going to class.
  • The building will not open until 7:30 in the morning and there will be no supervision before then. Parents may drop off at the early childhood wing or cafeteria side of the building. If your child will be eating breakfast at school, it will start at 7:30 and end at 7:55.
important attendance and tardy policies
Important Attendance and Tardy Policies
  • When your child is absent, please send an excuse note to your child’s teacher upon returning to school. You may also call the attendance phone line to notify the attendance clerk of your child’s absence. Emailing your child’s teacher is another form of an excuse note. If you know ahead of time that your child is going to be absent, please send in a note as soon as possible. If we do not have an excuse note, the absence/absences will be marked as unexcused. Excessive unexcused absences may be cause for disciplinary actions against the parent.
  • The office MUST have a note from a parent if your child is tardy. If your child is tardy three or more times within a four week period without an excuse note it will be counted as an unexcused absence.
  • PLEASE, PLEASE read the parent/student handbook on these important attendance and tardy policies. When you sign the handbook form, you are stating that you have been made aware of these policies and that you agree to follow them.

  • You are welcome to have lunch with your child on Fast Fridays. However, we ask that you refrain from visiting for the first 2 weeks of school. This will make the period of adjustment at school go more smoothly.
  • You may bring food from home or fast food restaurant for your child only. Bringing food in for another child is not allowed.
  • Parents are not allowed to send in cupcakes or treats for their child’s birthday. If you would like to do something special for your child’s birthday during the school day, you may purchase ice cream from the cafeteria for the entire class. The ice cream will be passed out during lunch by the teacher on duty. You may send money in to the teacher or you may come up to the cafeteria and purchase the ice cream yourself during lunch. Ice cream is .75 each. This is not required but just an option.

  • Please try to get the supplies to school as soon as possible. You do not need to label the supplies.
  • Each child will be assessed at the beginning of the year. They will be tested on letter identification, concepts about print, and phonemic awareness. The results from these assessments will be discussed during mandatory parent conferences in October/November.
  • In December, we will begin testing for sight word recognition, how many words they can write/spell correctly, sentence dictation and reading level.
