Late Arrivals
-Children arriving after 9:00 am need to be signed in at the office and receive a pass that they will give to their teacher.
-Parents must accompany children in to the office to sign in.
Early Dismissals
- If a student needs to leave school early, a parent must come to the office to sign child out.
- All parents signing children out early will be asked to show valid identification on each occasion.
- Please do not call the office and ask to have your child dismissed from class prior to your arrival.
-Parents should never go to the classroom to pick up their child. Teachers cannot dismiss a child from the classroom to a parent.
- For safety reasons, we seek your cooperation in these matters.

Change in Normal Dismissal Procedures

- Should you require your child to be picked up by someone other than yourself or change his or her normal routine, we MUST have a note from home or a telephone call to the office.
-Children will be sent home as usual, no matter how insistent they may be, unless we hear from the parent.

Student Absence
- If your child will not be able to attend school, please contact the office by 8:45 am.
- You may leave a message on the answering machine if you call before 8:00 am, stating your name, your child’s name, the teacher’s name and the reason for the absence.
- Email the attendance clerk @ j[email protected]
- If we are not notified the day of an absence, we must then try to contact you to verify the child being at home.
- A "Planned Absence" form is available from the school office if you know ahead of time that your child is going to be absent from school for an extended period of time.

Make-Up Work Due To Absences
If your child is going to be out ill, especially for a number of days, you are encouraged to contact our office to make arrangements for your child's work to be sent home or picked up. We need the homework request by 8:45 am. Homework will be ready after 3 pm the same day. Students are given a day for each day missed to complete and return assignments given during their absence.
