Stone Bank School

Reaching Out ~ September 8, 2017

Attendance and Visitors

The start time for students at Stone Bank School is 7:30am. Students are admitted into their classrooms at 7:20am. The tardy bell rings at 7:30am. 4 year-old afternoon Kindergarten starts at 11:30am. (This is the tardy bell for the 4Kpm class). All students arriving after 7:30am or 11:30am for 4K pm students will be issued a tardy pass from the office. All students arriving late or leaving early must report to the school office for a pass. We encourage regular attendance. Please call the office by 8:00am to excuse your child when they're ill. Students who are ill and have been out of the school for more than three days, need to bring in a doctor's excuse.

In accordance with Wisconsin State Law, section 118.15, all students are required to attend school regularly on a consistent and timely basis. If a student is absent from school without an acceptable excuse for part or all of five or more days per semester, a petition may then be filed through the juvenile system. Though we respect that parents have the right to excuse their child from school, it is at the district's discretion to determine whether or not absences are valid.

We strongly encourage families to schedule vacations during our regular days off. If parents do schedule a family vacation during the school year, we ask that you notify the office in writing at least one week in advance.

Parents and visitors are reminded to sign in and wear a lanyard anytime they're in the building. Visitors, parents and/or guardians MUST sign in at the visitor window before proceeding elsewhere in the building.

A Message From The Office

If your child will be leaving early for an appointment, please have your child bring a note signed and dated by the parent/guardian including what day and what time they will be leaving from school. If you send an e-mail to the child's teacher, please be sure to include the office staff.

Bus Notes

Students wishing to ride the bus home with a friend on a particular day, must present a parent note to the office for approval. Students may not ride a different bus, or get off at a different stop unless a note of approval is presented to the bus driver. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
