October Calendar

BOOK FAIR- The Book Fair is here! Come shop on Wednesday, October 12th from 3:00- 5:00pm.

*Stay and join us for the PTA meeting at 5:30 in the cafeteria.

*Lunch Visits

Please be advised that after lunch visits have come to an end, you MUST report back to the main office to sign out. Parents/visitors should not visit any other areas of the building. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Afternoon Dismissal Plan

If your afternoon dismissal plans change for your child, please complete the transportation form and send in with your child as we are starting to get a higher volume of phone calls to report this change.

Attendance Reminders

When your child is absent, we must receive communication within three days of the absence for it to be recorded as "excused." Absences that are not substantiated by a note or phone call to the office within three days of the absence will remain "unexcused."

  • At 5 unexcused absences, you will be contacted to develop an attendance plan to resolve attendance concerns
  • At 7 unexcused absences, an attendance conference will be held to discuss continued attendance concerns
  • If attendance does not improve, a referral may be made to School Social Work Services for additional support

Tardy Students:

Parents, please remember that if your child is late (after 8:00 a.m.) you will need to come into the office to sign them in on the designated form. Your child will receive a tardy pass which they will give to their teacher upon arrival to class.
