Character Word of the Month for September: Trust

Our students are learning the value of having trust or being a trustworthy person. Trust means putting your confidence in someone you can depend on. It's important that we all have people in our lives that we can trust. Hopefully, someone popped into your mind. If not, look around for those that you can put your confidence in. Life can be better when you have people that you can depend on.


Instructional Day Information & Tardy/Early Dismissals

Our instructional day begins at 7:45. It is important that students are in class no later than 7:45 so they can eat breakfast and begin their day on time. We will follow district guidelines to address tardy issues.


We ask that you only sign your child out early if you have a doctor's appointment or family emergency. Our instructional day is short and every minute is precious. If a child is signed out 30 minutes early once a week, that is equivalent to 18 hours of lost instructional time.


Students May Enter the Building- 7:00am

Instructional Start Time- 7:45am

Parent Latest Sign Out- 1:45pm

Dismissal - Bus and Car- 2:15pm

Staying in Touch

As partners in your child's education, please obtain PowerSchool Parent Portal login information so you can view your child's grades on a weekly basis.


Also, please join Remind or Seesaw for your child's teacher. This is a great way to communicate with your child's teacher. Please allow them 24 hours to respond. If you have an emergency, please call the front office.

Transportation

  • To ensure your child's safety, please communicate any changes in transportation to the front office by calling (843) 664-8454 no later than 1:15.
