School Attendance is Important!

Some Attendance Tips:

  • Make sure your student keeps a regular bedtime and establishes a morning routine.

  • Turn off all electronics including TVs, phones, and tablets at bedtime.

  • Have backpack and clothes prepared the night before.

  • Check with our school nurse or office staff if you are not sure about when to keep your child at home due to illness.

  • Avoid scheduling vacations while school is in session.

  • Make every effort to schedule doctor appointments around school hours.

  • Talk to teachers and our social worker for advice if your student feels anxious about going to school.

  • In the event that your student cannot get to school in their normal manner, develop a plan with another family member or trusted adult to get them to school that day.

Dismissal Info.

REMINDER: Please call the office if you need to make a change for your child's Dismissal Transportation. For example: You will be picking your child up rather than riding the bus home. Please DO NOT message your child's teacher on Class Dojo. We want to make sure the message gets to your child and your child's teacher. Please call in at 219-956-3221. Please call in before 1:00 pm. Thank you!

A reminder that we dismiss at 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up. Due to safety concerns with traffic backing up to the highway, we begin releasing students 3-5 minutes before our scheduled dismissal of 3:25 PM for Parent Pick-Up Students. We are asking for your assistance with arriving to pick-up your child closer to 3:25 PM. This will prevent the line from backing up into the highway. Your assistance with this request is very much appreciated!
