Northwest Early Elementary

November 2021

Notes from the Principal

Northwest Early Elementary had great success with our Fall Conferences. We want to thank all the parents, grandparents and families for meeting with our staff members to support their student’s education. The conferences and continued communication is crucial to academic success.

It is also important that students attend every minute of the day, so please make it a priority to be on time in the morning and wait until school is dismissed to pick up your child. This ensures that your student maximizes their learning experience that our excellent teachers provide.

We thank you for your continued support.

If your child needs medication to be administered at a school a medication form must be completed, along with a signature by the prescribing physician. The medicine must be brought in the original container with the prescription label attached.

  • Medication must be transported by a parent and checked in at the office.
  • Over-the-counter medications (cough drops, Tylenol, Tums) must have doctor's order.


We encourage promptness since tardies affect everyone and disrupt classroom time. One of the most valuable life skills a student can learn from his/her parent/guardian is the responsibility of arriving at school every day on time. Morning is the time when important school news is announced, teachers define the plans for the day, and instructional goals are reviewed and set. The whole tone of a child’s school day is set in the first part of the day.

  • School starts at 8:25 a.m.

  • If your student is not participating in their classroom morning routine by 8:35 a.m. they will be considered tardy.

  • Students not in their classroom seat by 8:35 a.m. shall be considered tardy.

  • If the supervisory aides are not present when you drop off your student, they are tardy. Please make sure to come into the office and sign them in.

  • Doctor appointments/professional appointments are excused with a doctor's note.

  • Signing your child out of school prior to 3:10 p.m. is considered a half day absence.

  • Signing your child out between 3:10 p.m. and 3:40 p.m. has the same negative effect on your child's attendance as a morning tardy.

Please help support your child in learning habits that will help them be successful at school and throughout life. If you need help or have concerns getting your child to school on time please contact the office. We are here to help.


If your child will be absent from school please contact Danielle at 817-4981 or email
