If your child has lost anything at school, feel free to check our lost and found in our main office!

As a reminder, it is good practice to put your child's name on all personal items (coats, lunch boxes, hats, etc.)




If your child is absent for Picture Day, we will have makeup pictures in January.

Student Attendance: Absent, Tardy, Early Pickup

In accordance with the Child Safe Program, parents must call in an absence to our automated phone system. This voicemail is available 24/7. You will receive a call home to inform you when your child is not in school for the day, even if you have left a voicemail. A child needs to be fever or symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to school. Please remember that a note is always required when a child returns to school, even if the office was previously notified.

We ask that every effort is made to have the children get to school by 8:40 AM. Children entering the classroom after 8:50 AM are considered tardy. These late arrivals miss homeroom announcements and important instruction. Please try to schedule appointments after school dismisses.
