Arrival and Departure
At the beginning of the new school year, we ask that parents stress the following to their children:
- Good safety habits on the street, including crossing with the crossing guard at busy corners
- The dangers of accepting rides from strangers
- The importance of going directly home following dismissal from school
- Safety on the school bus and crossing streets when getting on and off the bus
If, for any reason, a student must leave school before the end of the regular day, a note must be sent to the teacher. Parents should plan to meet their children at the office for early or unexpected dismissals requested by the parents. Please avoid calling the school near the end of the day to change plans for your son or daughter. Bussed students will be expected to board their bus each day unless a written note is received indicating a change in the regular routine.
Attendance and Punctuality
Late arrivals must report to the main office to receive a late slip. The Administration will contact the parents when lateness becomes frequent. If a child is absent from school, he/she must bring a dated note signed by the parent when he/she returns to school. If your child is absent, please call the school to inform us. We have an attendance check every morning and we call home to those families who have not informed the school to verify the absence.
