You will receive a phone call on Monday if your paperwork is not completed. Students may not be enrolled unless we have all required documents.

Carla's Corner- Parents, it is not safe to send your child to school with laces if they do not know how to tie their shoes. As I observed the children playing on the playground, I witnessed several struggling to climb. They just want to be carefree and play, but their shoes are falling off. Please find some velcro, no tie or slip on shoes for your child so they can run freely.

Extra Extra Read All About It

  • The door is still not working but is promised to work next week. Forecasts show it will rain all day tomorrow. Please allow yourself a little more drive time and also save these numbers so that you can notify staff when you need to enter the building: 817.375.2283 and 682.706.822. The last number is cell phone and can receive texts.
  • Breakfast will be served from 6:45-7:45. Students arriving after that time will not be served.
  • Boys are not allowed to wear earrings to school. All students are forbidden to wear hair beads of any kind.
  • Did you know that when a child has a stomach bug, they should stay home from school or daycare for 24 hours after the last bout of vomiting to decrease the spread of the illness to others? If your child has to miss school because of a sickness please call or email by 10 am, and also let us know if anything is contagious. Your child must stay home if they have a fever exceeding 100 degrees or if they are showing any signs of illness.
  • A one time Smart Care code can be sent to someone picking up your child for the day. Text it to them and have them save it in their photo album. When they sign in, it should work on the kiosk. If there is someone other than yourself that will pick up your child consistently, please email Coach Justin at jalexander@cbcarlington.org so he can give you instructions on how to get that person a code to scan. Some parents are still not signing their child in and out and we need to fix this issue.
  • Please do not give your door code to anyone other than the person it was assigned to for building access. This is to ensure the safety of all children and staff. Also, if you are suspicious about someone wanting to get in the door and you realize they do not have a code, wait in your car and do not allow them to enter behind you.
  • Clock your child in and out daily. We must keep accurate attendance records to maintain DFPS compliance
  • Bring extra clothes daily!!
  • Bring a blanket and fitted sheet on Monday, take home on Friday.
  • Lunch is catered each day. Please call the school by 10am if your child has not arrived and let someone know they will be here for lunch. Students bringing snacks from home will be given an additional snack time at 5pm to eat those foods.
