The importance of regular attendance cannot be overemphasized. A child should be in school every day that he/she is physically able. It is extremely difficult to successfully keep up with classwork if attendance is irregular. It is equally important that students arrive to school on time to alleviate missed instructional time. The district’s attendance policy states:
• A student who is absent more than nine (9) days within a semester may not receive a passing grade for the semester.
• Absences not counted in the nine (9) days/four (4) days attendance policy are: court dates, religious holidays, illness with medical documentation, and chronic and extended illness.
• Kindergarten students must be in attendance for a minimum of 162 days, as a criterion for progression to first grade.
• All students must be in attendance a minimum of four (4) hours of instructional time to be considered present each day.
Car Loop Dismissal
For safety purposes, please avoid walking through loop. This request is for the safety of our students and your support is appreciated.
To ensure the Car Loop moves swiftly, please display your car tag with your child’s name on it when driving through the Car Loop at dismissal. If you need a new tag, please come in the front office with your ID to receive another one.
For the safety of our students, your child will only be released to an adult listed with permission on your child’s registration form. If an adult other than the parent or guardian listed on the registration form arrives to pick up a student, we will need to contact the student’s parent/guardian prior to releasing the student. If you need to add/delete members, please stop by the front office to make changes.
No checkouts will be permitted after 2:15 p.m. Monday - Thursday or 1:00 p.m. on Fridays.
Rainy Day Dismissal
Please ensure that you have a Rainy-Day Dismissal Plan in place with your child and his/her teacher. It is important for children to be aware in advance of what to do in case of stormy weather. If there is light rain with no sign of thunder or lightning, dismissal will proceed as normal. Bike riders and walkers will be reminded to proceed home as quickly as possible. In the event of a severe downpour, or if there are signs of thunder or lightning, students will remain on campus and will follow their Rainy-Day Dismissal Plan.
