ATTENDANCE- One of the most important thing you can do to insure your child succeeds in school is to make sure he/she is in school ON TIME. When a student is absent, a phone call or note is required. Excessive tardies/check outs mean your child is missing key instruction. THERE ARE NO CHECK-OUTS AFTER 1:45 P.M. WITHOUT A NOTE AND WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL FROM THE PRINCIPAL.
LUNCH- You may eat lunch with your child, but you must sign in at the office. If you have brought food from a restaurant with their logo, you will be given a paper bag in which to place it. Federal guidelines prohibit “outside” food from being eaten in the cafeteria during lunch times
VISITING TEACHERS/CLASSROOMS- Teacher are responsible for all of the children under their care. Please do not ask to drop in for a conference. If you must speak to a teacher and it is not his/her planning time, a principal will arrange for someone to cover the class. If you want to observe a class, it must be scheduled with the teacher and approved by the principal. ALL VISITORS MUST SIGN IN AND RECEIVE A BADGE.
BUSES- The Transportation Department (799-6451) schedules all bus routes. However, please remember that riding the bus is a privilege, not a right. Speak to your child of the importance of demonstrating good bus behavior.
DISMISSAL- Only buses may enter the bus loop. Once they have loaded and exited, the vans from various after-school programs enter the loop.
CARS- Circle the parking lot. It is very important that each car pull all the way to the curb at the top of the loop. As cars pull out, the next ones in line must pull all of the way to the top. By doing this, the line moves more quickly. Do not park and call your children to the car. It is not safe for them to dart across the traffic.
IF YOU CHANGE HOW YOUR CHILD IS GETTING HOME, WE MUST HAVE A NOTE SIGNED BY YOU. WE CANNOT ACCEPT A PHONE CALL. WITHOUT A NOTE, WE WILL SEND YOUR CHILD HOME THE WAY YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY ARRANGED.
