Picking Up Your Child
If you are picking up your child at dismissal time, please wait outside of the building.  We must have a written note if there is a change in your child’s transportation.   No change in transportation will be permitted unless we have a written note from the parent.  A telephone call will NOT be accepted.  During the school day, you must come into the office to sign your child out.  Children are only released from class when called from the office.

Attendance Policy
Attendance at school is essential for good performance and high achievement.  A written excuse, dated and signed by the parent is required for all absences.   Excused absences include illness, death of an immediate family member, religious holidays for which prior approval is given, medical and dental appointments, and special cases approved by the principal.  Children are tardy if they arrive after 8:00 a.m. and must obtain a tardy slip from the office.

All medication to be given at school must be in the original prescription bottle, clearly labeled with the student’s name and instructions, as well as the name of the medication.  Before any medication can be administered, a written authorization must be signed in the office.

1.  All students must wear tennis shoes.  
2.  A note must accompany a child who cannot participate due to illness or injury.  
3.  A doctor’s statement is required if a child cannot participate for more than a week.
4.  Students excused from participation must attend and observe instruction.

Media Center

The library is open for students to check out books from 7:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.    Students are scheduled for library with their class once a week for one hour.  Books are checked out one at a time for one week. A list of overdue books is sent to classroom teachers.  Lost books must be paid for in full before a student can check out another book.  The librarian, in conjunction with our classroom teachers, sponsors various special activities and programs.  Please stop by the library to find out more about our activities and encourage your child to read!!
