Tardiness: Students in Grades K through 4, and morning pre-k, are considered tardy if they are not in their classrooms ready to begin at 8:35 a.m. Afternoon pre-k students are considered tardy after 12:20 p.m. All students who arrive late for school must report to the Main Office to obtain a late pass. When a student arrives at school 30 minutes after the instructional period begins, parents are required to escort their child to the Main Office in order to indicate the reason for their child being late.
Early Dismissal: Parents are requested NOT to ask that their child be excused early except when a true emergency makes early dismissal unavoidable. Early dismissal should be arranged in writing through the Main Office. Students will be called to the office AFTER the parent/guardian arrives and signs their child out of school.
We look forward to seeing you at school!
