rules and procedures
Attendance and Late arrivals
Remember that attendance is highly related to academic achievement. Please continue to make sure students arrive on time, before 9:15. Students may enter the building beginning at 8:45 and must be picked up by 4:30. Please reach out to the Before or After School Program if you need this service. The last bell rings at 9:15. Students that come in after this time will be marked late. Parents must come into the office to sign in their child and students will receive a late pass.
Send a written note to your child’s teacher or an email to Mrs. Silva (email@example.com) explaining your child’s absence once he/she returns to school. You can call or email Mrs. Silva directly if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s absences.
The following reasons are considered excuses for absences:
If you need to pick up your child early, you must sign out your child at the main office prior to 3:00 p.m. We will not interrupt classroom instruction between 3:00 and 4:00 p.m. for an early dismissal.
Change in transportation
All changes in transportation must be in writing via a note or email directly to the teacher by 9:30 a.m. If you have an unexpected change in transportation, please send an email to your child’s teachers and copy our front office staff, Mrs. Silva (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ms. Royston (email@example.com). Phone calls for changes in transportation will not be accepted unless it is an emergency.
