SCHOOL MESSENGER: Email and voicemail

School Messenger will be used to communicate with parents. Messengers will be sent as a voicemail or an email. These messages inform parents of upcoming events, activities, field trips, fund raising activities, and parent meetings. You will also be notified by School Messenger if there is an emergency at school. It is important to have current phone and email records in order for you to receive these messages. Please take time to listen to the School Messenger!

If your child has FOOD ALLERGIES

The Child Nutrition Program will make every effort to accommodate students with special Dietary needs. The Child Nutrition Program MUST have written documentation from the physician requesting the alternate diet or food items. The cafeteria manager has copies of the form "Diet Prescription for Meals at School" which should be completed by the physician. A NEW FORM MUST BE SUBMITTED EVERY YEAR. Please let us know if your child has food allergies so that we can get this form to you.

Box Tops for Education

Remember to sent in Box Tops! Our school earns money for each one that is turned in!

Tardy Policy


Students who are late for school should report to the office.

Students who are tardy are disruptive to the classroom learning environment. Tardies have an adverse effect on a child’s educational progress. According to the Mobile County Public School System Code of Conduct, “Students are required to be on time for school. It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to make sure their children arrive on time each day.” Parents will receive a letter when excessive tardies occur.

Students who have more than one tardy per quarter do not qualify for perfect attendance. Students who have excessive tardies (more than 3 per quarter) and/or excessive absences, will not participate in field trips or school sponsored events.

Parents/guardians and students will be referred to the Early Warning Truancy/Discipline Program on the fifth (5th) unexcused absence and on the fifteenth (15th) tardy to school.

Students enrolled in Pre-K will be removed from the program after the fifth (5th) unexcused absence and/or fifteenth (15th) tardy to school.
